The "First Annual Springing towards Health Gala" launches the MNBNA scholarship fund for nursing students. The organization believes that having more nurses interact with communities will improve health outcomes and reduce health disparities.
Trained as a bio-cultural anthropologist, Dr. McClaurin, Principal of McClaurin Solutions of Raleigh, will speak on race and health disparities. Rev. Deidre Walton, President of the National Black Nurses Association, will appear as a special guest speaker.
Thomasina Petrus and Ray Covington will provide soulful musical entertainment from 9:30pm-1AM.
The event is at Crowne Plaza Minneapolis North in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota. Individual tickets are $60 and group tables of ten are $600. Sponsorship packages ($500-$5000) and Program Ads ($25-$250) are available.
