Note: Nurses are the best! Alan
As Louisville’s hepatitis A outbreak was picking up steam earlier this year, more than 200 nurses stepped up to help protect the community by administering vaccinations to thousands of food service workers.
“There was no payment. It was strictly, ‘This is my community and we’re doing what we do to help our community,’ ” said Ruth Carrico, clinical director of the UofL Physicians Vaccine and International Travel Center. “How often does that happen?”
Thursday, an event will be held on the University of Louisville Health Sciences Campus to help thank the nurses and other health care providers for their service — while treating them and the public to some good food.
