NORTHAMPTON — Cooley Dickinson Hospital will host a benefit tea and lecture for the Cooley Dickinson Nurse Development Program on Thursday, Oct. 2, from 2 to 4 p.m. at the Smith College Conference Center, featuring author, historian, and scholar Judith Lissauer Cromwell.
Cromwell, author of the book Florence Nightingale, Feminist, will lecture on Nightingale’s story from a post-feminist perspective. Community members are invited to learn about Nightingale, a nursing pioneer, and support their local community hospital.
Cromwell, who lives in New York City, is excited to bring her work to Northampton and Cooley Dickinson. Her personal experience, both as a magna cum laude graduate of Smith College and as a 20-year veteran of corporate America, enriches the perspective she shares in her book.
Tickets cost $35 and can be purchased online at www.bit.ly/cdhgiving, as well as at Coopers Corner/State Street Deli, Broadside Book Store, and Amherst Books. For more information, call the Cooley Dickinson Development Office at (413) 582-2255.
