The World Health Assembly has designated 2020 the International Year of the Nurse and the Midwife in celebration of the 200th birthday of Florence Nightingale. This year-long recognition and celebration has taken on increased relevance as nurses and midwives are playing a vital role in the unprecedented public health crisis brought on by the coronavirus pandemic.
Rear Admiral Aisha K. Mix is the Chief Nurse Officer, advising the Office of the Surgeon General and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services on the recruitment, assignment, deployment, retention, and career development of nurse professionals.
Join us for a conversation on the current pandemic and the role of the public health nurse during response and recovery.
The livestream will be available beginning at 12:30 p.m. Have questions? Tweet them at @TheCityClub or send a text to 330.541.5794.
