Columbia, Mo. — Maithe Enriquez, an associate professor in the University of Missouri Sinclair School of Nursing (MU SSON), was inducted as a Fellow in the American Academy of Nursing Oct. 19 at the Academy’s 40th annual meeting in Washington, D.C.

Enriquez, a nurse practitioner, volunteers one day a week at Truman Medical Center in Kansas City, where she provides primary care for adults living with HIV disease. She has focused her research and clinical career on enhancing health outcomes for underserved low-income individuals of color and individuals living with HIV disease. Her research largely centers on medication adherence among HIV patients.

“Dr. Enriquez enriches our complement of faculty here at the Sinclair School of Nursing,” says Judith Fitzgerald Miller, dean. “She provides a great service through her expertise as a nurse practitioner and commitment to the inner city population. Her research is grounded in practice and has immediate relevance and applicability.” 

Enriquez is one of 16 MU SSON faculty and emeriti who are AAN Fellows. Selection criteria include evidence of significant contributions to nursing and health care and sponsorship by two current Academy Fellows. Applicants are reviewed by a panel comprised of elected and appointed Fellows, and selection is based, in part, on the extent the nominee’s nursing careers influenced health policies and the heath and well being of all.
