WEST VALLEY CITY — A presentation and discussion forum comparing wartime experiences of nurses from Utah and the British Isles will be held Tuesday, April 9.
The event will be from 7–8:30 p.m. at the Utah Cultural Celebration Center, 1355 W. 3100 South. The public is welcome to attend the forum free of charge. The event will be of special interest to nurses, those who have served in the U.S. or British military and those interested in wartime history.
Nurses from Utah and those from Great Britain who served during a war have many experiences in common. The event aims to showcase those similarities and differences through the presentation of a theme quilt and a discussion. Attendees with personal experiences during wartime interacting with the nursing profession are encouraged to share their stories.
The purpose of the Nurses at War Project is to record, archive and share the experiences of nurses who have served during a war. The project is intended to help others understand the role of military nurses in the service of their profession and their country.
