There was a time when whites did not want black nurses to attend to them, even though black women had been feeding them and nursing them back to health during slavery. But a nurse was a professional position, sometimes more prominent in the hospital than the doctor in saving a patient's life. Black women who broke the barriers in the field of nursing recently celebrated the 50 year anniversary of the 1965 graduating class of Provident School ofNursing. This past weekend October 16, they celebrated the Founder of a nursing sorority that continues to provide scholarships for African American women in the field of nursing. Today Kai Eta Phi sorority member Toni Parks Oats discusses the challenges in the field of nursing and the importance of encouraging our girls excel in math and science, critical skills they'll need ins health care industry.

Guest is: Gina - Advocate for patient rights in skilled nursing facility.
Will be discussing SB 1362 -Bill to Amend SS & SB 670 Nursing Home Litigation first half hour of show.
In 2010. Gina's significant other of 21 years passed away from ovarian cancer and Gina wound up homeless and in great medical need. Gina went through several major surgeries then placed in a Skilled Nursing Facility where her life was saved. Gina was moved from one facility to the one she is in now from 2011.
Gina was appointed Vice President of the Residents Council then voted President of the Resident Council and found herself fighting the powers that be for the residents rights. She began studying the medicaid/medicare laws and rights provided for the residential care in these facilities.
Since then Gina have become increasingly aware of how the nursing homes target these elderly patients from the doctor to the judges that abuse the guardianship program for their own gain. Gina's intention is to spend the rest of her life helping those targeted by these guardian programs that allow doctors to claim someone incapacitated, and lawyers that go behind the backs of friends and family and judges that grant for profit guardianship and complete control over others lives without telling them.
2015- June. Gina read Marisa Conover's story regarding her mother and reached out to her. She then hooked me up with TS radio. Marti Oakley and Debbie Dahmer had Gina as one of the Guests on World Elder Abuse Awareness Day -June 15th, 2015 On TS Radio.

Providing Much Needed Guidance

As we approach Veterans Day in November we want to make our Community aware of the Importance of Military Spouses Careers. More than one million service members will leave the military in the next five years. With this drawdown, and ongoing budget cut discussion, it's fair to say that our military families are in a state of high uncertainty, even for our community.
America will need the strength of its military families more than ever in the coming years. As we approach the second anniversary of a massive campaign to help veterans find jobs, "Hiring our Heroes" has been a godsend to those who care about our country's future.
Spouses need to Network with each other and with people in the business community to learn how communicate their strengths. Together, we can help strengthen our military families, our military and our economy.
Join me and my guest host Kim Archer Friday 10/30 from 10-11am MT to hear how she made this her mission to help.
