Lori brings a broad background in school nursing, first as a school nurse, as the State of Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction School Nursing Consultant and as a school nurse researcher. She serves as an interdisciplinary team faculty member of the MCHB-funded Pediatric Pulmonary Center (PPC) at the UW-Madison School of Medicine and Public Health. Her extensive survey work with school nurses and parents caring for children with chronic conditions led her to the idea for this project. Further work with technology-enhanced nursing education gave rise to the grant proposal for development of eSchoolCare.
