Please let us know if you have ideas for other pioneers to profile.

We are looking for these biographies to be 500-600 words long with their aim being to educate the press how the work of nurses autonomously saves and improves lives. We are looking to avoid description of any angelic or virtuous qualities the pioneers may have had.
