The Irene Engel Fund for Professional Advancement in Nursing

In honor of Irene's dedicated service to UConn Health, both as an employee and in retirement as facilitator of the UConn Health Auxiliary, the UConn Foundation has established the Irene Engel Fund for Professional Advancement in Nursing. This fund is to benefit UConn Health nurses who would like to enhance their professional development through channels such as academic courses and conferences.

The Foundation is accepting checks (Payable to The UConn Foundation, please specify it's for Irene's fund) at 10 Talcott Notch Road, Suite 100, Farmington, CT 06032. Checks also can be dropped off at the Connucopia Gift Shop.

Plus, the Nov. 1 issue of The Pulse will feature a Q&A with Irene as she heads into "true" retirement!
