FAIRFIELD, Conn. – Professor Linda Strong of Stratford, a nursing professor for the past 23 years as Sacred Heart University and a public health nurse for more than 33 years, was honored recently with an award of $1,000 from the Connecticut State Society—Daughters of the American Colonists (CTSSDAC). A check was presented to her by Christy Hendrie, a family nurse practitioner graduate of SHU’s School of Nursing and new State Regent for the CTSSDAC.
