Geneva is honored to announce the 2018 Researcher of the Year (ROY) award recipient.

Senior Nurse Scientist MAJ (Ret.) Mary McCarthy, PhD was selected as Geneva’s 2018 Researcher of the Year in recognition of her longstanding commitment to and excellence in military nursing research, with notable contributions in research quality and research mentorship.

“On behalf of the Scientific Advisory Board, I would like to extend our appreciation to Dr. McCarthy and her impressive body of research focusing on the health of the service member. The Scientific Advisory Board found it fitting that we honor Dr. McCarthy for Geneva’s 25th anniversary year, as she was awarded Geneva’s first TriService Nursing Research Program grant more than 20 years ago.” said Dr. Neil Vining, Chair of Geneva’s Scientific Advisory Board.

Dr. McCarthy has partnered with Geneva since 1996 and has been instrumental to the sustainment of Geneva’s mission since that time. Dr. McCarthy’s research is conducted at Madigan Army Medical Center and focuses primarily on the vital role that nutrition plays in the overall health of service members. Her skills and expertise as a clinical nurse for over 15 years, as a research nurse for 10 years, and as a nurse scientist for the past 12 years, have enabled her to contribute significantly to the development and implementation of impactful and translational nursing research efforts.
