Nurses Week Education Dinner – “The Joy of Caring” with Dr. Patch Adams

Local 196 proudly welcomed Dr. Patch Adams for our
Nurses Week Education Dinner.

It was a evening to remember.

Over 400 nurses from Local 196 gathered together at Fantasyland Hotel May 9, 2017 for an evening of delicious food, great company, and a guest speaker we will talk about for years! Celebrating nurses and the work we do, Dr. Patch Adams shared his extensive life’s work in a entertaining and inspiring talk: “The Joy of Caring”.  Dressed as a clown, Patch made us laugh and a few of us cry with his inspiring, worldly stories and the importance of caring for oneself. Our own Local President, Joy Arntzen, gave the audience a chuckle helping out Patch onstage in one of his ‘clowning acts’.

Check out some photos from the night!
