Alabama Nurse Defense Lawyer – Board of Nursing Alabama Matter Pending? We Can Help – Caring for the nation’s immigrant children – (866) 348-2889
Last summer, news reports captured the public’s attention with stories about thousands of Central American immigrant children crossing the Mexican-American border. Although these stories have faded from the front page, nurses like Cathy Woodward, DNP, RN, PNP-AC, began wrestling with questions about the future healthcare needs of these children.
For the last several months, Woodward, an associate professor in the department of pediatrics at the University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio, has been volunteering at a portable health clinic in McAllen, at the southern tip of Texas in the Rio Grande Valley. Besides Texas, other states with the most unaccompanied children released to sponsors include New York, California and Florida, according to the Office of Refugee Settlement.
