This past week I attended the joint meeting of the 4th Annual Agnes Dillion Randolph International Nursing History conference and the Southern Association for the History of Medicine and Science in Charlottesville, Virginia. It was great to reconnect with nursing history colleagues in North America and kick off the spring conference season with an excellent conference.
