Tompkins Cortland Community College Professor Emeritus Janet Morgan will tomorrow (September 15) give an interactive presentation on the history of nursing and education in our local community at the History Center in Tompkins County.
The free presentation will begin at 6 p.m., making connections between many of the events, people, and places that are the backstory to 21st nursing in Tompkins County.
Discussion will begin with local women who cared for soldiers during the Civil War and will end with present-day nurses serving our communities.
Morgan taught at the College for 22 years, serving as the chair of the nursing department from 2001 until her retirement in 2009.
Named a Professor Emeritus in 2011, she currently serves on the Tompkins County Board of Health, chairs the Varna Community Association Board of Directors, and performs with the Dorothy Cotton Jubilee Singers.
Her presentation is a special event that is part of the “Celebrating the Impossible Dream” exhibit, which is on display in the main lobby of the Tompkins Center for History & Culture through December.
The exhibit explores the College’s more than 50 years of history and innovation.
The History Center in Tompkins County is located within the Tompkins Center for History & Culture at 110 North Tioga Street on the Ithaca Commons.
