Kathryn Barnard, Pioneer for Babies, Dies at 77
A very special nurse scholar, mentor and highly respected friend Dr. Kathryn E. Barnard has died — peacefully. She has been known as the mother of maternal child nursing and left a legacy in the field of infant mental health. As an internationally known nurse theorist Kathryn knew very early on the importance of environment in supporting the developing parent infant relationship. Thank you Kathryn for your leadership, scientific exploration and generosity in sharing with others.
