On the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918 the guns fell silent and the world's first global conflict -- "The Great War" -- came to an end. One of the most destructive wars in modern history, the conflict resulted in the slaughter of more than 16 million soldiers and civilians. This November UIC will mark the centenary of the end of World War I with 11 days of interdisciplinary conversations and events exploring the war than transformed our contemporary world.
Join us at the Library of the Health Sciences - Chicago, Special Collections Room 320, for a talk on "The Nurses of World War I," presented by Dr. Gwyneth Milbrath, Clinical Assistant Professor, College of Nursing.
