Congratulations to Carole Etherington for MLK Award

from Wayne Wood:

Carole Etherington, R.N., has traveled to war zones to provide care to civilians, was in New York City in the days after Sept. 11, 2001, to provide mental health care to traumatized people, and has been the U.S. head of Doctors Without Borders. She has been instrumental in advocating for rape victims in Nashville, and is a faculty member at the Vanderbilt School of Nursing and is associate director of Community Health Initiatives at the Vanderbilt Institute for Global Health.

And this week she was announced as the winner of this year’s Martin Luther King Award from Vanderbilt University Medical Center, presented to a Vanderbilt faculty or staff member in the School of Medicine, School of Nursing or the Medical Center who emulates King’s principles through his or her work.

Here’s a story on Carole’s award.
