Our featured speaker will be Dr. Mary Beth Zeni, ScD, RN, EBP-C, and Associate Professor at Ursuline College in Ohio.
Professor Zeni has conducted archival research in Ireland and the UK regarding the role of the Irish Sisters of Mercy and Florence Nightingale in the field hospitals of the Crimean War (1853-1856). Professor Zeni will use for reference a painting in the National Portrait Gallery in London illustrating Reverend Mother Moore, Superior of the Irish Sisters of Mercy, Florence Nightingale and other major figures of the conflict. She will highlight her findings on the role the Sisters of Mercy played and their influence on wartime nursing practice.
Dr. Zeni will also touch on Captain Louis Nolan who was tragically one of the first killed in the legendary Charge of the Light Brigade.
We especially invite medical professionals to join us in this fascinating presentation and anyone with a military history background or any family connection to Capt. Nolan.
