Pamela S. Hinds, PhD, RN, CS, began her involvement with the Oncology Nursing Society (ONS) nearly 20 years ago. As evident by the trajectory below, her contributions to the organization have been widespread. Hinds' work in the areas of certification, education, research, and evidence-based practice has been outstanding and has affected many of the organization's activities and programs. She also has worked diligently to establish a partnership between ONS and the Children's Oncology Group. ONS is very appreciative of her long-standing involvement and congratulates her on receiving the 2004 ONS Distinguished Researcher Award.
