Nearly 250 people attended the June event to hear Holtz, who is most famous for his 10-year tenure as head football coach at the University of Notre Dame. Holtz shared his thoughts on overcoming seemingly impossible challenges by setting individual goals and working to achieve them.
The event raised more than $115,000, which will be used toward the establishment of an endowed chair in oncology nursing at the Pitt School of Nursing. The new chair will hold a dual appointment at the University of Pittsburgh Cancer Institute, facilitating the translation of the latest research to the bedside for state-of-the-art patient care. Through this position, the Pitt School of Nursing hopes to advance the practice of oncology nursing and simultaneously establish itself as a model for oncology nursing research.
