Patricia A. Grady, PhD

Congratulations on WIN’s 60th Anniversary. I would like to be there to help you celebrate, but that is not possible.

I have many memories including Jo Eleanor Elliot and Jeanne Kearns as directors. At the first research conference Ada Sue Hinshaw presented her research and I was her critiquer. We were all excited to be a part of the first research conference. Hard to believe that it was fifty years ago. Research and WIN has certainly grown and prospered, much to the benefit of nursing.

You are fortunate to have Doris Kearns Goodwin to Keynote the conference. I always enjoy her when I see her contributions on some of the National TV programs.

My best to you and the WIN membership for a successful conference. Greetings to all and especially to anyone who may still remember me.

Gladys Sorensen, EdD, RN, FAAN
