Master’s Students Lisa Hellebuyck and Erica Wikan Receive Mary Jane Schwertfeger Awards from the Rackham Graduate School
Two master’s students in the pediatric nurse practitioner (PNP) program at the U-M School of Nursing, Lisa Hellebuyck and Erica Wikan, have been selected to receive a one-time award from the Rackham Graduate School in recognition of their work with vulnerable children. The award is made possible by a gift from the estate of Professor Emerita of Education Mary Jane Schwertfeger, who saw maternal and child health as critical for children to learn and thrive, both locally and around the world. This award honors her passion. To support their work with vulnerable children, Lisa and Erica will each receive an award of $5,000.
