Dr. Rice was appointed as a WHOCC Scholar in early 2012.  She originally became involved in global health nursing through the PERC project which involves training international study coordinators in low resource countries.  She is co-Investigator on the project and it has been an eye-opening experience for Dr. Rice.   

She is also the subspecialty coordinator for the clinical research management masters program at UABSON.  Dr. Rice has also been involved in the PERC Zambia project which works to enhance clinical research skills in study coordinators in Zambia.  In addition, she is working to connect  international research colleagues from Latin America and the Caribbean in the SNRS since these areas are part of the region served by the organization. Her particular interests lie in global health nursing research and child health.
