“My mother Jeanette Spaulding was a pioneer in nursing who came from rural roots. She was highly committed to education and community service. The families she worked with left an indelible mark on her, and she knew how important her work was to each family and the greater community. She inspired me to pursue a career in nursing with a focus on rural health.”

“Our dream is for the Jeanette M. Spaulding Memorial Research Fund to serve as a catalyst for the development of active programs of rural nursing research at UC Davis and beyond. As well, for those of us who have been privileged to work in higher education it is highly appropriate for us to give back to support institutions that are committed to innovative approaches to social change through education.” -- Jeri Bigbee, Adjunct Professor, Betty Irene Moore School of Nursing
