Julia Snethen, PhD, RN, FAAN

  • Professor

Dr. Snethen has research, teaching, and clinical experience in caring for children with chronic conditions, including end-stage renal disease, transplantation, childhood obesity, and maternal-infant care. Emerging from those experiences, Dr. Snethen’s research addresses caring for children with a chronic condition, their parents, and siblings, with a focus on childhood obesity research. The research conducted by Dr. Snethen has evolved into incorporating the promotion of health and wellness across populations of children and their families, from birth to emerging adulthood. Further research conducted by Dr. Snethen has explored the familial unit, children’s and parent’s view of the familial environment, and decision-making to identify effective prevention and management of excess weight in children. Much of Dr. Snethen’s research continues to be conducted within the Latino community. Currently, in partnership with a team of community and research colleagues, Dr. Snethen’s research is on the stigma attached to the chronic condition of obesity. Additionally, Dr. Snethen has been working with members of the American Academy of Nursing Child, Adolescent and Family expert panel members to research the effects of the pandemic and racism on childhood obesity.

Threaded throughout Dr. Snethen’s professional career as a nurse scientist Dr. Snethen has actively engaged in evidence based practice and quality improvement projects within the maternal-infant population contributing to clinical, policy, and research endeavors. Dr. Snethen has worked Sigma Theta Tau International with funding by Johnson & Johnson, in their Maternal-Child Health Nursing Leadership Academy initiatives. Working with nurses around the U.S. and Canada, Dr. Snethen has facilitated research, evidence based practice, and quality improvement projects that promoted maternal-child health. Dr. Snethen’s pivotal work enabled maternal-child health initiatives with nurses included projects to keep mothers and infants together following cesarean birth; Increased skin-to-skin rates to increase exclusive breastfeeding rates at discharge; Neonatal Nursing Handbook development and implementation to improve patient safety; engagement in NICU graduates received follow-up developmental evaluations; ensuring MCH staff received bereavement training; and the promotion of early prenatal care for Somali refugee women to prevent poor birth outcomes.
