As a result of her efforts volunteering in Puerto Rico, Elisa has become even more grateful for even basic things in life.
The experience also inspired her to apply for two masters degrees in public health and nursing.
This young nurse and single mother rose to the challenge, and had a life-changing experience, while also helping to save the lives of others. We are so very fortunate to be able to honor this future humanitarian – a nurse who is already making a global impact early in her career.
We look forward to honoring Elisa along with other amazing nurses at the United Nations on May 11, as we recognize International Nurses Day.
