Disaster Ethics Symposium Dec 7 in Kansas City

Terri Edens, RN, is an emergency room nurse at St. John’s Regional Medical Center in Joplin, MO. On May 22, 2011, she was on duty when a devastating tornado shredded much of the southwest Missouri community.

Edens looks forward to the completion of the hospital’s temporary facility.

“It will be very nice to have more space and solid walls again,” Edens says, “but mainly we look forward to continuing to do the job we love which is serving our community.”

Hear Terri Edens and a host of other medical professionals describe their disaster experiences during The Perfect Storm: Disaster Ethics Symposium and Public Forum on Wednesday, December 7, 2011 in Kansas City.

The symposium features presentations by individuals who were on the scene during the Hyatt Hotel disaster in Kansas City, Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans, and the tornado that ripped through Joplin, Missouri in May 2011.

At 6 pm that evening, a public forum is scheduled with Anna Pou, MD, who spent nearly a week in Memorial Hospital in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina hit in 2005. Registration for the public forum is $15.

Continuing education credits are available for the symposium.
