International Nurses Day

"Year of the Fly" is also an opportunity for fly specialists to showcase their research work and new discoveries in the field and make these more widely known.

Take a moment to think of all the nursing professionals today, International Nurse Day. We appreciate everything that you do, not just during this pandemic but every single day. Thank you for being the heart of healthcare. We salute you!
