Hope, Healing, and Humanity: Nursing in Global Disasters and Crises

Health Muhamed Hands Only
Every day Canadians are responding to disasters and crises around the world. West Kelowna nurse Rosalind Neis is one of those inspiring humanitarians. Join us as she shares stories of hope, healing and humanity from her experiences as an aid worker with the Canadian Red Cross. You’ll hear about her time in the operating room in Bangladesh, where she assisted people fleeing violence in Myanmar. She’ll also share stories from a remote village in Nepal where she helped people recover after the devastating 2015 earthquake. Learn about the successes and challenges of global nursing, what it takes to become an aid worker, and how to stay positive when responding to disasters and emergencies.  Attend in person or take part online.
