Miyamoto selected for Betty Irene Moore Nurse Leaders and Innovators Fellowship

Sheridan Miyamoto in Penn State College of Nursing is one of 11 nurse scientists accepted to the inaugural cohort of the Betty Irene Moore Fellowships for Nurse Leaders and Innovators. This new fellowship program, funded by a five-year, $37.5 million grant from the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation, recognizes early- to mid-career nursing scholars and innovators with a high potential to accelerate leadership in nursing research, practice, education, policy and entrepreneurship.

As part of the three-year fellowship program, fellows receive $450,000 to conduct an innovative project or study with the potential to address a gap in knowledge, meet a vital need, alter care delivery or design a new solution to advance health. Miyamoto’s project, “SAFE-T System: Sustaining and scaling nurse-led sexual assault care” is focused on creating a sustainable business plan and advancing policy to scale the Sexual Assault Forensic Evaluation Telehealth program for greater impact.
