Jaime Lapeyre RN, PhD candidate teaches at the Bloomberg Faculty of Nursing, University of Toronto. As background to her talk she notes that the immediate post World War 1 period witnessed one of the greatest public health crises of the 20th century – the influenza pandemic of 1918 – an event that highlighted the lack of well-trained health workers capable of providing public health relief. The need for public health nurses would set off an international debate among nurse leaders regarding the proper training of such nurses. Jaime’s talk explores the influence of the formation of a network of American nurse leaders on this debate. She will illustrate her talk with photographs.
Refreshments will be served
