Awards Gala Honors Nurses

Nurses’ contributions to our community are recognized at the March of Dimes’ Nurse of the Year Awards Nov. 13.

The March of Dimes salutes the outstanding nurses from across Kansas and the Greater Kansas City region at the March of Dimes Nurse of the Year Awards Friday, Nov. 13 at the Sheraton Overland Park Hotel and Convention Center.

The black-tie gala includes cocktails and a gourmet dinner where the winners in 21 different categories will be honored. Nominated by their colleagues, patients and families, winners will be selected by a committee comprised of area healthcare professionals. From neonatal and pediatric care to mental health and advance practice, these awards recognize the contribution that registered nurses are making in our community and help fund the mission of the March of Dimes to improve the health of babies.
