"What unique challenges face nurses of color?  Join the Elaine Marieb College of Nursing, Monday, October 17, 2022, 1pm EDT to learn more about Our Voices II: Reckoning with Racism in Nursing. Share your voice in dialogue, discussion and future direction inspired by the compelling stories of BILPOC identified nurses. This Zoom meeting is free and will not be recorded. Register today!  Made possible by the Seedworks Fund.

You'll have the opportunity to participate in a discussion inspired by first person interviews of nurses of color. During the program, you will view three short thematic films that feature the storytellers: "Racism in Nursing Education-Undergrad", "Caring Against the Grain" and "Patient Race Bias".  Then engage with your fellow event attendees as we chart a future direction for change.
