Nurses' Appreciation Week celebrated

(Glassboro, NJ) -- Gloucester County Freeholders celebrated National Nurses Week, May 6 through May 12, 2019, by honoring its own public health nurses with lunch.   

Freeholder Director Robert M. Damminger said, "Nursing is one of the most noble professions.  Nurses are often the front line of healthcare, they are advocates, they are compassionate and they do so much more than care for the physical well-being of their patients.  We cannot thank nurses enough for their hard work and dedication." 

Freeholder Jim Jefferson said, “Gloucester County’s public health nurses improve our communities’ every day.  They help educate the public about diseases or illnesses, they organize efforts to provide healthcare to our residents, and they do it all with a smile.  We are grateful for all that our nurses do and we recognize the important role they play in Gloucester County and in our society.”  Jefferson is the Freeholder Liaison to the Department of Health.
