There's Still Time to Register for the 24th Annual Women Veterans Luncheon. The 24th Annual Women Veterans Luncheon on November 12, 2021, from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. via Zoom live from England! Our keynote speaker will be Dr. Jane Brooks, PhD, RN.
Dr. Brooks is a senior lecturer in the School of Health Sciences at the University of Manchester. She was the 2015 recipient of the American Association for the History of Nursing Mary M. Roberts Award for the edited book, "One Hundred Years of Wartime Nursing Practices."
Her book, "Negotiating Nursing: British Army Sisters and Soldiers in the Second World War" uses personal testimony to uncover nurses’ own understandings of their work and place in the medical team. Her current project examines Jewish refugees who entered the nursing profession in Britain and provided valuable war work in the over-stretched hospitals during the Second World War and into the new National Health Service.
