Jenny Wright, RN

The A-T Children’s Project is happy to announce that Jenny Wright, RN, the nurse and clinic coordinator at the A-T Clinical Center at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, Maryland, has been awarded the Immune Deficiency Foundation’s (IDF) Art of Nursing Award. The award pays tribute to a member of the immunologic nursing community who has made extensive contributions to clinical practice, lay and professional education, and research. These contributions have served to improve the care of immunodeficient people and have a significant impact on the lives of those people and their families. The IDF will formally present the award to Jenny at their Biennial Primary Immune Conference in Chicago this June.

Jenny coordinates A-T patients’ visits to the A-T Clinical Center by scheduling appointments with multiple specialists, coordinating care provider schedules, managing travel and housing arrangements, and addressing any language needs. In addition, Jenny is a research nurse who works on multiple A-T studies and is a contributing author on most of the publications from the A-T Clinical Center.

Congratulations to Jenny on this well-deserved award! The A-T community is fortunate to have her. And, thank you to the families and friends who continue their grassroots fundraising efforts to support the A-T Clinical Center.
