Woodruff Health Sciences Center | Oct. 28, 2014
Faye Routledge, PhD, RN, assistant professor at Emory University’s Nell Hodgson Woodruff School of Nursing, will be inducted as a Fellow of the American Heart Association (FAHA) during the American Heart Association’s November Scientific Session in Chicago, Ill.
Induction into the American Heart Association Fellowship recognizes scientific and professional accomplishments and volunteer leadership and service. Nurses, physicians, scientists and other health care professionals are elected through a highly selective process based on a major and productive interest in cardiovascular disease and stroke.
"I am extremely proud to celebrate Dr. Routledge’s induction into the American Heart Association Fellowship,” says Linda McCauley, PhD, RN, dean of Emory’s Nell Hodgson Woodruff School of Nursing. "Dr. Routledge’s work as a cardiovascular nurse scientist has made a significant impact, and she is most deserving of this induction into one of the world’s most eminent cardiovascular and stroke organizations."
Routledge’s cardiovascular research is focused on identifying biobehavioral predictors of nighttime blood pressure and endothelial function, evaluating the effect of behavioral interventions on blood pressure and examining the relationships between insomnia, blood pressure, cognition, inflammation and vascular function in prehypertension and hypertension. She is currently funded by the American Heart Association’s Mentored Clinical and Population Research Award and is a pilot investigator for the School of Nursing’s NIH funded P30 Center for Neurocognitive Studies. Routledge’s research findings have been published in a number of leading publications such as the American Journal of Hypertension, Journal of Clinical Hypertension, Journal of the American Society of Hypertension, Canadian Journal of Cardiology, International Journal of Nursing Studies, Annals of Behavioral Medicine and Journal of Psychophysiology.
