Ohio State Associate Professor Awarded Fulbright U.S. Scholar Grant

Tim Landers, associate professor in the College of Nursing, is the recipient of a prestigious Fulbright U.S. Scholar Grant by the U.S. Department of State. Landers will be affiliated with the University of Gondar in Gondar, Ethiopia, from August 2017 – May 2018.
During his time in Ethiopia, Landers will be both researching and teaching. His research, "Evidence-Based Infection Prevention in Ethiopia," will focus on implementing evidence-based infection prevention and control activities focused on antimicrobial resistant organisms. He will be teaching evidence-based practice in the graduate program and supporting their new Nursing PhD program.
"I feel like this opportunity is possible because I have so many wonderful and encouraging colleagues here at Ohio State who have a breadth and depth of experience and helped me see where I can help Ohio State have a global impact," said Landers.
Landers is a member of the Global One Health steering committee and has been highly involved in One Health projects in Ethiopia for about five years.
