Washington, D.C., --- Dillon Cox has been appointed new director of development for the Georgetown University School of Nursing and Health Studies (SNHS). She assumes this role effective August 1, 2003.
“We are thrilled to have someone with Dillon’s infectious sense of enthusiasm for Georgetown and a true understanding of the SNHS mission of improving the health and well-being of all people,” said Dean Bette Keltner, Ph.D., RN. “Dillon will play a critical role in helping attract the philanthropic support that is so critical for realizing our vision of educating the 21st century health care provider.”
Cox began her development career at Georgetown working as an associate director of development for the Lombardi Cancer Center.
