COLUMBIA, KY - More than 200 area veterans and their guests were honored Monday at the 14th-annual Lindsey Wilson College Veterans Appreciation Luncheon.
"Anywhere there is a soldier, there is a nurse nearby," keynote speaker Dr. Marian Smith told a total of approximately 210 guests in the Roberta D. Cranmer Dining & Conference Center. Dr. Smith spoke to guests about the origins of the field of nursing and its ties to veterans. Dr. Smith also presented a plaque stating the Lindsey Wilson College Nursing pledge to U.S. veterans.
"As of today, November 7, 2016, Lindsey Wilson College is proud to state that the programs of nursing have joined forces with the American Association of Colleges of Nursing and the Department of Veterans Affairs in an effort to enhance the resources of nursing working with veterans," said Smith. "Nurses have an important role to play in insuring that service members and their families get the highest quality of care that they deserve."
More than 25 LWC nursing students were in attendance at the event to greet the veterans and their families and share information about issues that effect their lives.
One of those students was senior Ariel Asher of London, KY. She spent time talking with veterans about hearing loss.
"Many of our veterans suffer some sort of hearing loss," said Asher. "It was rewarding to provide information that may help them to live healthier lives."
