A group of AMAZING women and I went out into the community of San Diego today to vaccinate some of our city's homeless population with the Hepatitis A vaccine. It was truly inspiring to see! The individuals that we were supporting were extremely grateful for our attention and took advantage of asking questions of our nurses that come from various disciplines. Each person volunteering their time gave in their own unique way - we had one non-nurse leader out circulating among the crowd to encourage people to take advantage of this service, while one nurse that is bilingual circulated among the Spanish speaking, and one nurse leader became the token baby sitter, while moms got their vaccine. My cup run over - I was and am truly grateful to work for Kaiser Permanente!
The contributions of many made the work less taxing and far more rewarding and inspiring. It truly started my week off right!
