About The DAISY Foundation

The DAISY Foundation, standing for Diseases Attacking the Immune System, was established in 1999 in memory of J. Patrick Barnes, who passed away at 33 due to complications from the auto-immune disease Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura (ITP).

Inspired by the compassion and clinical skill of Patrick's nurses, his family created DAISY to honor exceptional nurses everywhere. The foundation now extends its gratitude to nursing students for their outstanding care of patients and families.

The Bebout Wellness Center

The Bebout Wellness Center for the Helping Professions, supported by the Bebout Family Foundation, provides nursing students with evidence-based self-care practices and a dedicated space, the Bebout Resilience Room, on the third floor of the Bass building.

Created by and for nursing students, this quiet space encourages rejuvenation and time away from stressors, fostering a culture of health.
