Lynn Callister named to national child and newborn panel

Lynn Callister, a faculty member in the Brigham Young University College of Nursing, has been selected by the Association of Women's Health, Obstetric and Neonatal Nurses to serve on an advisory panel focused on childbearing and newborn health issues.

AWHONN, an organization of more than 22,000 health care providers, aims to advance women's and newborn's health by promoting effective treatments and educating women and their health care providers.

"Lynn Callister is a nurse leader who brings a unique understanding of the complexity of maternal, newborn and neonatal health, as well as the current and future health care delivery environment," says Gail Kincaide, executive director of AWHONN. "Her guidance and counsel will greatly benefit our organization and its members in the coming years."

Callister earned her bachelor's degree in nursing from BYU, her master's degree in maternal/child nursing from Wichita State University and her Ph.D. in parent/child nursing from the University of Utah. In 1988, she joined the faculty at BYU, and has been teaching women's health and maternal/newborn nursing in addition to serving as associate dean of curriculum in the College of Nursing. Callister is also an adjunct professor in the College of Religious Education.
