The week of May 6-12 is National Nurses’ Week, devoted to giving special recognition to those who are truly the heart of health care — nurses!
The 6th is National Nurses’ Day, and the 12th — the birthday of Florence Nightingale — is International Nurses’ Day.
For our May feature, simply send us a picture of your favorite nurse — whether a relative, friend or that angel with a stethoscope who touched your life or the life of a loved one.
We’ll publish a few of the ones we receive in our “Patient People” feature in our Sunday, May 5, edition, and they’ll all be posted on our website.
Email a large jpeg file to email@example.com or mail your picture to:

Don’t forget to include the name and city of residence of the person in the picture. (It’s also nice to know who sent the picture.)
THE DEADLINE IS WEDNESDAY.
