Better late than never to honor Vietnam nurses

I meant to post this on Memorial Day.

But, in keeping with the theme, better late than never.

One of our health journalism grad students, Dr. Kay Schwebke, had a terrific article in the American Journal of Nursing in May, "The Vietnam Women's Memorial: Better Late Than Never." The article was based on her capstone project in our graduate program.

There are also podcasts related to the article online.

More recently, Schwebke had an important article posted on MinnPost.com, "As recession bites, Minnesota hospitals struggle with unpaid bills." It profiles some of the "hundreds of Minnesota hospital and clinic employees laid off within the past eight months, largely because of rising costs of uncompensated care."

Kay is a role model for new physician-journalists - diligent, health-policy-minded, inquisitive, able to think like a journalist writing for her audience - not just like a doctor.
