Nursing Lecture on 'Ground Zero'

Nursing Lecture on 'Ground Zero'

A Boston nurse will discuss her experience working at "Ground Zero" in the aftermath of the Sept. 11 World Trade Center disaster at The Rev. Edward J. Gorman, SJ, Lecture on Humanistic Nursing on Oct. 23. Sponsored by the BC and Regis College chapters of the nursing honor society Sigma Theta Tau International, the event, which is free and open to the public, will be held at 7 p.m. in the Shea Room of Conte Forum.

Marie LeBlanc, a nurse manager of surgery and trauma at Massachusetts General Hospital, traveled to New York on Sept. 11, 2001, with the International Medical Surgical Response Team and the Metro Boston Disaster Medical Assistance Team. The medical team is specially trained and equipped to perform life-saving emergency care for victims injured in catastrophic events.

Organizers ask that those interested in attending the lecture call CSON at ext.2-2230.
