Lawana Brown HeadshotRegis College Assistant Professor of Nursing and Women’s Health Program Director Lawana Brown was featured on "Exceptional Women," the long-running series on Audacy station WMJX "Magic 106.7"

In Brown’s first year as host of Regis’ Nurses’ Station, a series of video conversations with national luminaries in healthcare, she has had conversations with nursing leaders, including Dr. Beverly Malone, president and CEO of National League for Nursing; Zenei Triunfo-Cortez, president of National Nurses United; Presidential Medal of Freedom recipient and first non-trial recipient of the COVID-19 vaccine Sandra Lindsay, and New York Times bestselling author Theresa Brown.

Brown’s inspirational personal and professional stories, along with her work as a faculty member and a series host, account for her selection. A dedicated nurse and natural public speaker, Brown puts her subjects at ease and always asks how they became the person they are now as a way of discovering their stories and finding connections. As a teacher, she encourages her students to take care of themselves and build resilience in their families.

Since 1992, the Exceptional Women program has put nearly 600 inspiring women in the spotlight, including Olivia Newton John, Alyssa Milano, Barbara Corcoran, Tamron Hall, and Jane Lynch. The show received 44 prestigious awards including the 2017 Gracie Allen Award from the Alliance for Women in Media, the Gabriel Award from the Catholic Academy of Broadcasters, and the Massachusetts Broadcasters Association "Sound Bite" Award.
