About the guest speaker:  
Filmmaker, photographer and author Carolyn Jones has spent the past 10 years interviewing more than 200 nurses from every corner of the United States - creating a book and a film called The American Nurse. The stories include examples that show the full spectrum of the nursing profession, from the bedside to the boardroom,  and how seemingly insignificant interactions changed the course of patients’ and families’ lives for the better.
