Teresa Stephens, PhD, MSN, RN, associate professor, is hosting a museum exhibit in Johnson City, TN at the Reece Museum at East Tennessee State University (ETSU) related to her work with Holocaust survivors. “Deadly Medicine,” a traveling exhibit produced by the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, will be at ETSU through Sep. 28.
Stephens’ ongoing research on resilience led to the exhibit coming to ETSU. Stephens, who recently joined the College in Nursing and is a former ETSU faculty member, studies individuals and populations who have experienced extreme forms of trauma and survived. The aim of her research is to help health care students and professionals, as well as patients and others, learn ways they can be more resilient and better cope with stressful or traumatic situations.
