New York Times Columnist and Bestselling Author Theresa Brown to Speak at SUNY Canton

Friday, March 18th, 2016

Theresa BrownTheresa Brown, RN, author of the book “The Shift: One Nurse, Twelve Hours, Four Patients’ Lives,” will speak at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, March 23, at SUNY Canton’s Roos House Convocation, Athletic and Recreation Center.

The event is part of the spring installment of the college’s Living Writers Series and is cosponsored by Claxton-Hepburn Medical Center and Hospice and Palliative Care of St. Lawrence Valley. It is free and open to the public.

The publisher describes “The Shift” as an eye-opening and riveting account of Brown’s day as a nurse in a busy teaching hospital’s oncology ward. The reader is offered an unprecedented look into the individual struggles of patients and medical professionals, which reveals larger truths about medicine in the United States.

“The Shift” is a New York Times bestseller, and Brown has been a guest on NPR’s “Fresh Air with Terry Gross,” “Hardball with Chris Matthews” and ABC’s “20/20.” Her column “Bedside” was published in the New York Times op-ed page, as well as on the Times’ blog “Opinionator.” In 2009 she attended a White House press conference where President Obama quoted her New York Times article about health care reform.

“We are thrilled to partner with Claxton-Hepburn Medical Center and Hospice and Palliative Care of St. Lawrence Valley to bring such a timely and compelling literary voice from the field of medicine,” said SUNY Canton Assistant Professor of English and series creator Phil K. LaMarche. “Theresa Brown’s stories from the cancer floor of her hospital are fraught with personal drama and the difficult medical issues of our time.”

Dr. Danielle Ofri, author of “What Doctors Feel: How Emotions Affect the Practice of Medicine,” described Brown’s book as a “compelling and compassionate human drama. If you want to understand how modern medicine ticks, fasten your seat belt and spend a day in the hospital with Theresa Brown on ‘The Shift.’”

Brown received a bachelor’s degree and a doctorate in English from the University of Chicago and a master’s degree from Columbia University. She has also taught writing and literature at Harvard, MIT and Tufts. Her first book, “Critical Care: A new Nurse Faces Death, Life, and Everything in Between,” is used by many schools as a nursing textbook. She currently works as a clinical nurse in Pittsburgh.

SUNY Canton Commits $25,000 Scholarship For Claxton-Hepburn Employees

Thursday, June 27th, 2013

Claxton HepburnIn support of Claxton-Hepburn’s next capital campaign, the SUNY Canton College Foundation has generously committed $25,000 in scholarship support to assist Claxton-Hepburn employees seeking a SUNY Canton Nursing or Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree. This scholarship was established to encourage CHMC employees to continue their education and pursue higher levels of training in order to provide the highest level of care to the community.

Each fall for five years, five Claxton-Hepburn employees will be selected through an application process for a $1,000 scholarship to help them with tuition and other applicable educational expenses while pursuing a two- or four-year nursing degree. David Ferris, Chief Nursing Officer at Claxton-Hepburn, who received his Nursing degree at SUNY Canton in 1984 and teaches in the program today, commented “We are fortunate to have SUNY Canton’s nursing programs in our community. This scholarship program is a wonderful opportunity for our staff and we are excited to work with SUNY Canton.”

Since 1902 when the A. Barton Hepburn Nursing School was founded, and later through work with SUNY Canton, Claxton-Hepburn has been committed throughout its history to high-quality local nursing education. Claxton-Hepburn provides clinical experiences for SUNY Canton nursing students, and later employs many of them. The medical center also has a tuition reimbursement program for employees who return to seek higher degrees while employed. Claxton-Hepburn’s long connection with the SUNY Canton Nursing program also includes the service of Linda Fay, Professor Emeriti of Nursing at SUNY Canton (1972-2005), who is on the Claxton-Hepburn Medical Center and the Claxton-Hepburn Health System boards.
