Helene Fuld foundation Seminar

A two day “Helene Fuld Audio-Visual Seminar” was held at Babcock Auditorium in June 1970. The Helene Fuld Foundation was established in 1935 by the late Dr. Leonhard Felix Fuld as a memorial to his devoted and caring mother. Dr. Fuld was a generous philanthropist who devoted much of his later career to the enhancement of the health and welfare of student nurses. In the early 1950s, through his foundation, Fuld began giving significant amounts of money to several nursing enterprises. North Carolina Baptist Hospital was one such recipient receiving more than $800,000 in 1965. The hospital used the money to purchase the newest and best electronic equipment for its audio-visual program which was closely connected to the teaching of students in the School of Nursing and Allied Health programs here. The seminar was presented at twenty eight schools throughout the United States and was devoted to the advanced training in the use of audio-visual aids in the education of nurses.
