Feb. 28, 2007 - Judy Sandeen, Hastings College director of health services, selected for award
Judy Sandeen, R.N., B.C., Hastings College director of health services, has been selected to receive the Ollie B. Moten Award, an honor given by the American College Health Association (ACHA).
Sandeen will receive the award at the ACHA annual meeting, May 29-June 2, 2007, in San Antonio, Texas.
The Ollie B. Moten Award commemorates the work of Ollie B. Moten, R.N., past chair of the nursing section of ACHA and former director of the student health center at Texas Southern University, Houston.
This award, established in 1992, honors ACHA members who have made a significant impact on the institution of higher education in which they work, regardless of whether the individuals have been active beyond their institutions.
Sandeen, who will retire in June, has served as health center director at Hastings College for 29 years. Not only does she tend to the health needs of students, but she also serves as advisor for the college’s health-related organizations and peer education program.
“Judy realized that student wellness depended on more proactive, preventive measures, so she expanded her work to include not only clinical services, but also peer health education programs that have earned widespread acclaim,” said Dr. Phil Dudley, Hastings College president. “She has an amazing work ethic, and her commitment to students is unwavering.”
Sandeen’s work with the college’s peer education network has been recognized nationally, and she was awarded the national Outstanding Advisor Award by BACCHUS (Boost Alcohol Consciousness Concerning the Health of University Students) five times.
Sandeen also serves as advisor for SHAC (Student Health Advisory Council), CARE (College Acquaintance Rape Educators), PHIVE-O (Peer HIV Education Organization), and Alliance (promotes and educates tolerance and acceptance of students of all sexual orientations).
In 2004, Sandeen received the National Sexual Violence Resource Center for Outstanding Advocacy and Community Work in Ending Sexual Violence award, and in 1996, was the Hastings YWCA Tribute! To Women honoree. She also was named a Mid-Rivers Red Cross Distinguished Service Volunteer, and volunteers with the American Cancer Society and the Nebraska AIDS Project.
Sandeen is a graduate of Hastings College and Mary Lanning Memorial Hospital School of Nursing.
