The award will be part of the Wright State University-Miami Valley College of Nursing and Health’s “Cameos of Caring” event. Mr. Costie will be the first person to ever receive this award.
In an announcement letter from Wright State University Dean Rosalie Mainous, Dr. Mainous cited the College of Nusing and Health’s long partnership with the Dayton VAMC and the many opportunities the Dayton VAMC has provided to Wright State University students and faculty. These opportunities have included hosting undergraduate students during their clinical rotations, allowing the students “to interact with a diverse population of Armed Forces Veterans who exhibit a wide variety of illnesses.” Wright State University professors have also partnered with Dayton VA personnel on a wide range of research projects.
The letter from Dr. Mainous continues: “We are all grateful to you, as Medical Center Director, for fostering the spirit of innovation and cooperation which will impact the nursing profession for many years to come.”
Additionally, Dayton VA Registered Nurse Bonnie Tobias will be recognized at the same event for a “Cameos of Caring” award winner for her work with OEF/OIF Veterans.
