MILWAUKEE – Dora Clayton-Jones, Ph.D., RN, CPNP-PC, assistant professor in Marquette’s College of Nursing, has been named the president of the International Association of Sickle Cell Nurses and Professional Associates.

“Having our faculty provide counsel and lead important groups like the International Association of Sickle Cell Nurses and Professional Associates strengthens and deepens the education we offer our nursing students,” said Dr. Janet Wessel Krejci, dean of the College of Nursing. “Dr. Clayton-Jones’ dedication to the IASCNAPA reflects our Jesuit mission of cura personalis, care for the whole person. She has a long history of advocating for those in the community who have been disadvantaged, especially the youth.  Her outstanding leadership will bring more awareness for sickle cell disease and the important work nurses do.”

IASCNAPA provides a platform for nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, social workers, sickle cell advocates and other health care professionals caring for individuals with sickle cell disease to improve their care through advocacy, standardized practice and education.

Clayton-Jones began her term on May 1, 2019, and will serve until Dec. 31, 2021. In addition to her teaching role at Marquette, Clayton-Jones’ research advances health equity by examining the health care transition experiences of adolescents and emerging adults living with sickle cell disease and ways to promote their self-management behaviors and transition readiness.
