Carolyn Jones spent five years interviewing, photographing and filming nurses across America, traveling to places dealing with some of the nation's biggest public health issues. She shares personal stories of unwavering dedication in this celebration of the everyday heroes who work at the front lines of health care.
Watch Defining Hope on November 1st to see how nurses are transforming the culture of dying in America. With our rapidly aging population and incalculable challenges in healthcare and end-of-life care, we are not dying the way we used to. When faced with a life-threatening illness, nurses can guide us through very complex choices and help us figure out what makes life worth living.
