Exploring the Inspiring Mission of the Nightingale Initiative for Global Health
On episode 378 of The Nurse Keith Show nursing and healthcare career podcast, Keith interviews Dr. Barbara Dossey and Dr. Deva-Marie Beck, international co-directors of the Nightingale Initiative for Global Health (NIGH).
In the course of this episode, Keith and his esteemed guests discuss the legacy of Florence Nightingale and the intersection of NIGH’s profound work with that of the 17 United Nations Global Goals for Sustainable Development (SDGs) which were adopted by all 193 UN Member States in 2015. Nightingale’s life and work anticipated every one of these SDGs, all as factors in recovering and maintaining health. Today we call these factors social and environmental determinants of health, and they could not be more important at this moment in history. Please join us for an inspiring and edifying conversation with two giants of Nightingale scholarship, innovative thought, and nursing theory.
