National Nurses Week: FON Speaker Kate Bowler to Present Virtual Series

Kate Bowler, PhD, MAR, will present five activities during the 2021 observance of National Nurses Week. The series will be completely online, with four, “bite-sized," pre-recorded sessions leading up to a longer, live keynote address on May 12. Everyone is welcome to attend the activities, which are sponsored by Duke Friends of Nursing (FON); no registration is necessary.

The Duke Friends of Nursing Board of Advisors cordially invites you to attend the 32nd Gala Celebration of Excellence! Hundreds of nurses, friends, supporters and community members attend the Gala each year to honor all Duke Nurses, and to recognize the nominees and winners of the Excellence Awards. While we can't celebrate in-person this year, we are preparing for a very special virtual celebration. Join us for a virtual program celebrating our spirit of innovation, unwavering compassion, clinical excellence, and significant impact across Duke Health. We hope you will attend. There is no fee for this event.
