BLOOMINGTON -

The dean of the Indiana University School of Nursing has received what the university calls one of the highest honors in health and medicine. The National Academy of Medicine has elected Robin Newhouse, who is also an IU Distinguished Professor, to serve as one of its newest members.

IU says people are elected to the academy based on "major contributions to the advancement of the medical sciences, health care and public health." Newhouse's main research focus is on health system interventions to improve care processes and patient outcomes.

"Robin is a pioneering scientist and scholar whose prodigious and innovative research in health care delivery systems has improved the quality of care for patients and patient outcomes," said IU President Michael McRobbie. "Additionally, the evidence-based translation models that she has developed are used around the world to guide decisions made by health system clinicians. She is most deserving of this exceptional honor, which is one of the highest honors in her field, and we are extremely proud of the contributions she continues to make to Indiana University’s world-class environment for teaching, research and creative activity."

Newhouse is one of 80 members elected to the academy from throughout the world this year and is the 14th IU faculty member elected in the school's history. Bernice Pescosolido, Distinguished Professor of Sociology at IU, was elected last year.

In addition to her work as dean of the School of Nursing, Newhouse is also leading the $50 million IU Grand Challenges initiative aimed at tackling the state's addiction crisis. She also serves as chair of the Methodology Committee of the Patient Centered Outcomes Research Institute and is vice chair of the AcademyHealth Board of Directors.
