On May 16th, Dr. Anne Dabrow Woods, Chief Nurse of Wolters Kluwer Medical Research and the publisher of American Journal of Nursing and Joanna Briggs Institute (JBI) at Wolters Kluwer, was a special guest speaker for the United Nations and the World Health Organization on “E-health: Using Technology to Improve Global Public Health” during the Global Classrooms® International Model United Nations 2014. In attendance at the three-day conference were 2,300 students from more than 20 nations. The event was held at United Nations Headquarters and the Grand Hyatt Hotel in New York City.

During her presentation, Anne discussed the importance of access to evidence-based practice resources from global collaborations such as JBI and exposed future policymakers to the principles of evidence-based practice. Anne fielded over 20 delegate questions, including the impact of "Big Pharma"  policies on global health, ensuring clean water, food and sanitation as foundations for health in developing nations, and how new technologies, such as apps and robots, are changing healthcare practice today.
