ISPN Keynote Speakers

Closing Keynote Address: Margaret Trudeau

Opening Keynote Address: Suzanne Miyamoto, PhD, RN, FAAN

Closing Keynote Address: Margaret Trudeau
Margaret Trudeau is a Canadian icon, celebrated both for her role in the public eye and as a respected mental-health issues advocate. From becoming a prime minister's wife at a young age, to the loss of both her son and her former husband, to living with bipolar disorder, Margaret tirelessly shares her personal stories to remind others of the importance of nurturing the body, mind, and spirit. 

Margaret's Closing Keynote Address on Saturday, April 14, 2018, is the title of her bestselling book, "Changing My Mind," which charts her life's ups and downs. Her latest title, "The Time of Your Life," offers women an inspirational and practical approach to creating a healthy, happy, secure and satisfying future.

Margaret sits on the Executive Advisory Board of the UBC Mental Health Institute as a community advocate, and she is the former Honorary President of WaterAid, a charitable Canadian non-governmental agency that is dedicated to helping poor communities in developing countries build sustainable water-supply and sanitation services. She is also the proud mother to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

Opening Keynote Address: Suzanne Miyamoto, PhD, RN, FAAN
Suzanne Miyamoto, PhD, RN, FAAN, is Chief Policy Officer for the American Association of Colleges of Nursing. With over a decade of policy experience, Dr. Miyamoto serves on the senior leadership team while overseeing and providing strategic guidance for the programmatic areas of health policy, higher education policy, government affairs, diversity and inclusion, strategic outreach as well as research and analytics. She also is the Executive Director for the Nursing Community Coalition that includes 64 national nursing organizations that collaborate on a wide spectrum of health policy issues.  

Her Opening Keynote Address on Thursday, April 12, 2018, is "Turning Chaos Into Opportunity: Navigating the Political Waters."
