My research continues to focus on nursing’s
contribution to global health since 1945. My
next monograph will be entitled The China
Gadabouts: Negotiating New Frontiers of
Humanitarianism 1941-1951
and examines the
Friends Ambulance Units humanitarian work in
China. My current research on global nursing’s
humanitarian role in conflict zones compliments
the first year seminar, UNIV*1200, that I offer
on the changing nature of humanitarian crisis
since 1945.
