I will be in the UK March 3 to May 7, 2018 on Nightingale work, including giving a paper at the Commonwealth Nurses and Midwives Federation meeting; “Nurses after Nightingale: The next generation of nurses facing war and epidemics.”

The next meeting of the Nightingale Society will be held on March 12, 2018, 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. at the Royal Statistical Society, London, UK, chaired by Dr Eileen Magnello.
(Address and details supplied to any interested: let us know: firstname.lastname@example.org)
Main agenda item: the Bicentenary celebration 2020. (The Nightingale Society is a member of the larger network planning events: we are trying to encourage celebrations around the world, in nursing and broader public health and reform organizations, conferences and publications.)
The meeting is timed to take advantage of nurses attending the Commonwealth nurses conference.
Celebrations in Wellow, Hampshire, April 21, 2018
The local community near Embley Park, Hampshire, holds a Nightingale lecture every year, also a church service in commemoration of Nightingale, near her birthday in May. This year I will be giving the Nightingale lecture, “Florence Nightingale: The Real Goods and the Lasting Legacy,” relating her lasting influence to the faith that motivated her.
I would be happy to meet with people to connect on Nightingale issues at other times that suit: let me know through email@example.com.
