What Inspires You? More Answers!

by: Linda Le | Mon, Mar 10, 2014 |

We received some more wonderful answers to the "What Inspires You" question:


Richard J. Slote, Beth Israel School of Nursing, 1995

"For the past 6 years I have participated in a medical mission in Ghana, West Africa, to care for children who have undergone spinal fusion for severe deformities.  The children predominantly come from Ghana, Sierra Leone, and Ethiopia.  This photograph shows two happy post-op children with their respective braces following a challenging, and quite painful recovery.  But, they are not nearly as happy as their nurse!  It is the children who inspire me to return each year, and from whom I learn so much!"


Mary Frances "Francie" Free Emlen, University of Pennsylvania, 2009

"Forward momentum inspires me. A dissatisfaction with the status quo that leads to constant improvement of processes, policies, and outcomes. An idea and belief that things will get better breeds positivity. This positivity, vision, and hard work turns on an energy inside of me to push, push, push!"


Thank you Richard and Francie for these terrific submissions!
