Dr. Clary-Muronda Appointed as Sigma Theta Tau International's Liaison to the United Nations Economic and Social Council



 Dr. Valerie Clary-Muronda has been appointed as the Sigma Theta Tau International (Sigma) Liaison to the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC).  This honor comes after an extremely competitive selection process and reflects  Dr. Clary-Muronda's passion and commitment to improving global health outcomes.  

In July 2012, the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) granted special consultative status to Sigma, based on expertise in the field of nursing and global health. This UN designation recognizes Sigma’s commitment to the charter of the UN, which seeks to achieve international cooperation toward solving humanitarian issues.  As the Liaison, Dr. Clary-Muronda will "promote leadership to enhance Sigma member engagement by attending and/or participating in various UN events/programs/activities with the purpose of gathering information to inform and advise the Sigma Global Initiatives department, with the ultimate goal of fulfilling Sigma’s mission".
