Lutheran Parish Nurses International in Bethlehem, Palestine

By May 6, 2010 December 30th, 2013 No Comments

Dr. Marcy Schnorr led a group of American nurses of Lutheran Parish Nurses International to Bethlehem, Palestine. There they conducted a health fair (education and screenings) that included information on osteoporosis, foot care, balance, increased blood pressures, stress, diabetes, back pain, and caregiver fatigue.  Approximately 100 Palestinian women attended the event. The group’s main task was to support parish nursing in Bethlehem–now to be expanded to other sites in the West Bank. Dr. Schnorr’s airfare was supplied by LIMM.
