Event co-sponsored by USF School of Nursing and Health Professions, and Mercy Beyond Borders
Support the preparation of the first generation of professional nurses for the world's newest nation: South Sudan!
Learn about Borders' innovative work training young S.Sudanese women to become frontline healthcare workers in regions where violence, remoteness, and deadly diseases (oh, and did we mention crocodile maulings?) combine to produce some of the world's worst health outcomes.
Meet Sr Angela Limiyo, master nurse trainer from Uganda, and Sr Marilyn Lacey, Executive Director of Mercy Beyond Borders. Join us for their stories, amazing slides, lively discussion and refreshments.
