News from the World Forum for Parish Nursing.
* We mourn with the parish nursing community in Canada the death of one of their leaders, Valerie Cunningham Jenkins, Health Ministry Educational Coordinator of Inter-Church Health Ministries. She was a faithful leader within the Canadian Association for Parish Nursing Ministry, a beloved parish nurse at Augsburg Lutheran Church in Brampton, ON, and an Educational Partner and presenter for the International Parish Nurse Resource Center for the last several years. She died suddenly on March 26. Please keep her family and colleagues in your thoughts and prayers.
