Purdue Profiles: Karen Hudmon

Inspired by the loss of her mother to lung cancer, Karen Hudmon, professor of pharmacy practice, has helped change the way tobacco cessation counseling is taught. A program she helped develop, Rx for Change: Clinician-Assisted Tobacco Cessation, is the only broadly shared curriculum among health professional schools, in use nationwide and in 79 countries. The program teaches clinicians and health professional students of all disciplines how to assist patients with quitting smoking.

Purdue Profiles: David Nelson

Before David Nelson came to work for Purdue as the associate director of the Center for Instructional Excellence, he was on course to become a historian specializing in French colonial history. Instead, he chose to take the passion for teaching he acquired as a graduate assistant and put it to work changing the way professors around the world teach their students.
