Dr. Cynthia Flynn Capers, outstanding woman, nurse and colleague, was recognized at this year’s Cameos of Caring ® Gala.
A visionary leader, Dr. Capers brought Cameos of Caring to the Akron region in 2002. Modeled after a similar gala originated at the University of Pittsburgh, Cameos of Caring has become one of the region’s strongest collaborative programs designed to collectively advance professional nursing practice. During this year’s Gala, we will be awarding our 100th Cameos statue to Dr. Capers in recognition of her ongoing support to the Cameo’s program and the College of Nursing, and her contributions to the nursing profession.
Her background as a bedside nurse, an advanced practice mental health nurse, an educator, and a nursing leader have shaped her career and positioned her to be one of the strongest nursing advocates today. This original crystal statue, signed by its creator – artist Judi Charlson – was commissioned for the first Gala in 2002.
We are honored to award it to Dr. Capers.
