The Story of Florence Nightingale and New Media

How would Florence Nightingale have leveraged email, the internet, and social networking tools? A team of Nightingale scholars considered this very question in 2000. Inspired by the prolific communications and networking efforts that Florence Nightingale used to influence the health of the world, the Nightingale Initiative for Global Health (NIGH) works to increase public awareness on the critical health issues of our time. In a session called "Lights, Camera, Action! New Media to Empower Nurses for a Healthy World", NIGH will use a talk show format to highlight how modern multimedia tools can provide effective new platforms to facilitate intergenerational and intercultural exchange, and to advocate for a healthy world.

This session will be presented in English.
