Welcome everyone to the week before the Global Nursing Caucus Annual Conference! The program is packed (see attached) and time will be short, so to maximize discussions GHDonline will host a pre-conference online conversation open to all. And as a reminder to those far from Boston, if interested, you can "attend" the conference virtually from wherever you are. From human rights law, to cardiovascular health, mhealth, accompaniment models and midwifery, we invite everyone to join in on the conversation!
From the GNC:
"The annual conferences are one of the GNC’s most important initiatives. We believe that bringing nurses together in a focused setting to explore new developments, hear from experts in the field, and share our experiences is one of the most powerful and effective ways to expand the horizons of global health nursing.
Theme - Delivering on Our Promises: Tools for Nursing Advocacy in Global Health
You can register for either Friday, Saturday or both days. Please contact with any questions about registration.
