Biography

Prof Pfeiffer completed her PhD in 2014 and teachs Concepts of Professional Nursing, Ethics, Research and Theory. She is a founding member of the Spirituality and Health Institute, and has now expanded her 15 year history in spirituality and health research to include spirituality and health in the community.
She is the P.I. for the Intentional Outreach Intervention research at APU IRB. This multi-disciplinary, multi-university, mixed method research has involved masters of Public health (MPH) and Entry Level Masters nursing students. This study incorporates her long term interest in the interface of spirituality and health, but adds the public health dimension and strategically targets assessment and intervention to address perceptions of health and gaps in health in our current socio-political-spiritual environment. The goal is to develop a model any faith based organization can use to effectively intervene in the health of their neighborhood, and have church serve as a hub for community health and well-being.
