She also has received the Patricia Lee Thompson Dissertation Award for excellence in her dissertation.
"All of us at Bronson LakeView Family Care are proud of Laura and what she has achieved in the academic arena," said Nancy Buxser, director of physician services at Bronson LakeView Family Care.

In addition to her Ph.D., Ford holds a master's degree from the University of Michigan and a bachelor's degree from Western Michigan University.Among her professional affiliations, she is a member of the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners and the Michigan Nurses Association.
"I pursued a Ph.D. partly because it was a personal goal and also because I needed it for my teaching position at the U of M," Ford said."But this was also a way to focus professionally on issues that relate to research and policy in healthcare practice and education, especially in women's health."
In 2005-06 Ford participated in the University of Michigan's Medical Education Scholars Program (MESP).She was one of only seven healthcare practitioners in the state to receive the honor that year.
"I want to continue to be an advocate for the role of advanced practice nurses," she continued."Studies have shown that the more highly educated healthcare providers are, the more likely they are to be aware of current research and use evidence-based practices.Ultimately, this leads to better patient care."
