This year, the Mazda Motor Corporation is celebrating its 100th anniversary by naming 50 “Mazda Heroes,” selfless individuals who’ve done heroic things for their communities, and is awarding each of them a 100th Anniversary Special Edition vehicle. Nominations from across the country were sent in, and among those selected for the honor is Penn Nursing’s Josiah Borden, a student in the DNP Nurse Anesthesia program.
In the face of a disease that requires physical separation from other human beings, these care providers have extended their role, taking on tasks usually relegated to others and sitting in as family and friends to the ill. And the Penn Nursing community is doing all it can to support their colleagues on the frontlines.
Penn Nursing’s second annual Story Slam event was held on February 12th, 2020, and the videos of the evening, along with backstage interviews with each of the storytellers, are available now. The stories highlight the incredible role nurses play in our lives, as well as the endless possibilities for those entering the nursing profession.
