May 6th – May 12th is National Nurses Week. Our nurses work on the front lines, everyday, providing care and support to our WM community. In the face of the global pandemic, our nurses have worked tirelessly – sometimes putting their commitment to helping others before their own well being. The IWMF extends our deepest thanks to these heroic members of our healthcare team.
