We are delighted to welcome you to the first in an annual lecture series focusing on the history of nursing. This event will also celebrate the re-opening of the Midwest Nursing History Research Center after extensive renovations.
Dr. Arlene Keeling, our renowned speaker, is the Centennial Distinguished Professor of Nursing at the University of Virginia and Director of the Eleanor Crowder Bjoring Center for Nursing Historical Inquiry. Dr. Keeling has published extensively on nursing history, including co-editing, with Barbra Mann Wall, the 2011 book: Nurses on the Front Line: When Disaster Strikes, 1878-2010. This talk, “Collaborating in Crisis: The Chicago Visiting Nurses and the 1918 Influenza Epidemic" will invite reflection and discussion of Chicago nurses’ roles in the terrifying ‘flu pandemic of 1918.
Refreshments and discussion will immediately follow the lecture.
Guests are then warmly invited to tour the Midwest Nursing History Research Center.
