Prairieview Trust – Earl and Margo Powers Professorship
Support professorship in College of Nursing with an emphasis on issues that affect aging.
Gainesville-based Prairieview Trust established this fund in 2000 to support the first professorship to focus on excellence in geriatric care at the University of Florida College of Nursing. Endowing a professorship with an emphasis on aging is fitting, given the Trust’s interest in and support of the development of Oak Hammock, a UF-affiliated continuous care retirement community designed to develop a positive and healthy lifestyle for older adults. The support given by the Prairieview Trust enables the college to recruit a nursing faculty member and researcher who is expertly trained in these areas and can enhance the level of geriatric education and research in Florida and the nation.
