Ashley Darcy-Mahoney, PhD, NNP, FAAN, is a professor and chair at the George Washington School of Nursing. She is a neonatal nurse practitioner and researcher, and has worked throughout her career to advance nursing research, education and practice, with a focus on neonatology, infant health and developmental pediatrics. Her research has led to the creation of programs that improve health and developmental outcomes for at-risk and preterm infants. As a professor of nursing and the director of infant research at George Washington University’s Autism and Neurodevelopmental Disorders Institute, Dr. Darcy-Mahoney advances the body of research in infant health and developmental outcomes in high-risk infants with a focus on understanding the early brain and development trajectories in this population. This includes working closely with parents, teachers, nurses, other clinical colleagues, and government officials to bring both sound science and the reality of family lives in the development of new models, which ultimately influence health policy. Dr. Darcy-Mahoney was a lead member of the team that conceptualized and launched the “Talk with me Baby” and Háblame Bebé program that uses nurses as a workforce to teach parents about how early language exposure is an important predictor of future academic achievement beyond a variety of socioeconomic indicators such as parental income, level of parental education, or ethnicity. This program has proven how science can inform both policy and system-level changes to reduce health disparities in young children. She has been funded by the NIH, HRSA, and multiple foundations. Dr. Darcy-Mahoney is a Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) Nurse Faculty Scholar Alumna and most recently spent a year at the National Academy of Medicine as the Nurse Scholar in Residence. She is a fellow of the American Academy of Nurses, a 2017 Josiah Macy Scholar, and has earned numerous awards, including the 2014 March of Dimes Nurse of the Year, and the Lillian Sholtis Brunner Award for Innovation from her alma mater, the University of Pennsylvania.
