Commemorating the Bicentennial of Florence Nightingale’s birth in 1820, you are cordially invited to a special celebration of the year of the nurse and midwife with Professor Ann Kurth 87’PH as she shares her life-course perspective to health.
A nationally renowned epidemiologist and nurse-midwife, Dr. Kurth will discuss a variety of topics such as reproductive health, end-of-life/nursing home/palliative-hospice care during COVID-19 pandemic, and the impacts of global warming especially on vulnerable populations and communities of color.
In the trenches we have our nurses fighting against the pandemic, and at their shining hour, there are none better to shine a light on how to strengthen and optimize the global health system that will inevitably face compounding planetary stresses.
Dr. Kurth will be interviewed by Dr. Michaels-Strasser. Time will be allocated for Q&A.
