Five people have joined the College of Nursing Board of Advisors. They are Tim Benton, Trudi Fullen, David Minning, Marianne Rowe and David Widmann.
"Each is selected and appointed for their areas of expertise in order to complement the existing board as they engage in advising and counseling the college," says Andrea Lindell, PhD, dean of the College of Nursing.
Benton is a retired marketing, advertising and sales manager from Procter and Gamble. He has served on many boards, including the Cincinnati Opera, Clifton Senior Citizens Center and the O’Bryonville Animal Shelter.
Fullen is a registered nurse who serves on several boards, including Summit Country Day School, Cincinnati USA and Bridges for a Just Community. In 2002, Fullen received the Cincinnati Enquirer Woman of the Year Award.
Minning is the vice president and manager of patient environment at the Hill-Rom Company, a $1.3 billion provider of medical technology products and services. He earned his master’s in business administration from UC in 1995.
Rowe is a fundraising consultant, having served as the development director at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center from 1985–95. She is active in the Indian Hill Episcopal/ Presbyterian Church, and has been on the board of many organizations, including the FreeStore/ FoodBank and Springer School.
Widmann is the director of distribution and purchasing at Patheon, a provider of pharmaceutical development and manufacturing services. He is a 1980 graduate of the James L. Winkle College of Pharmacy.
The 24-member board provides advice and counsel to the dean. Through their work, the board established the Board of Advisors Scholarship Endowed Fund, which exceeds $250,000. They also host the Florence Nightingale Awards and work to provide financial support to the college’s Center for Aging With Dignity.
