Terry  Lennie, PhD, RN, FAHA, FAAN

Professor, Associate Dean of Graduate Faculty Affairs

Terry Lennie holds a joint PhD in nursing and psychology from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and completed a two-year postdoctoral fellowship in neurobehavior at the University of Michigan. He came to UK in 2003 from The Ohio State University, where he was an associate professor of nursing. He currently serves as co-director of the RICH Heart Program and associate dean for the PhD program at the College of Nursing.

Dr. Lennie’s program of research focuses on the development of scientifically based interventions to optimize nutritional intake in patients with cardiovascular disease, with a special focus on heart failure. Current lines of research include determining (1) the psychological, social, biological, and environmental factors that influence food intake of patients with heart failure; (2) the effects of sodium restriction on nutritional quality of diets; (3) the roles body fat mass, nutritional intake, and proinflammatory cytokine activity play in the surprisingly better outcomes observed in overweight and obese patients with heart failure (for which he was funded by a grant from the National Institute of Nursing Research); (4) the effects dietary fat intake on proinflammatory cytokine activity; and (5) promoting nutritional self-management of cardiovascular disease prevention and treatment.

Dr. Lennie received the Heart Failure Society of America Nursing Research Award in 2003. The American Heart Association Council on Cardiovascular Nursing awarded him the Arteriosclerosis/Heart Failure Research Prize in 2004, the Research Article of the Year Award in 2006, and the Best Abstract Award in 2007. He is a fellow of the American Heart Association and the Academy of Nursing.
