Casey Gets Surfing Lessons? RN Deborah Burger, NY Times Best Selling Author Steve Berry…and Lots of Mischief in Between
This week on Nurse Talk Casey and Dan visit with RN and National Nurses United Co-President, Deborah Burger. It isn’t unusual that we found Deborah on her way home from an important nurses’ rally in Michigan–because that’s what Deborah does when she isn’t working her full time job at a hospital in Northern California. Deborah chats with us about the upcoming Day Of Action on September 1st. The purpose of the Day Of Action is to bring awareness to the growing divide in our country between the rich and the poor. It sounds simplistic but it’s not–and as our politicians work toward more cuts in basic services and education, access to affordable healthcare gets further and further out of reach, our jobs are being shipped offshore and Medicare and Social Security are being threatened–something must be done. Who better to lead the charge than nurses? Find out how you can get involved at nationalnursesunited.org.
And later Casey laments that the summer is passing before her very own eyes and she hasn’t done half (if any) of what she wanted to do. One of her secret wishes is to have Dan give her a surfing lesson! Yes, that’s right, a surfing lesson. The trouble starts here!!
New York Times best-selling author Steve Berry joins us to talk about his philanthropic passion of history and his fascinating new book The Jefferson Key. Not only is this author of #1 best-selling “thrillers” a fantastic writer–but he is inspiring, and brilliant! A lifelong, devoted student of history, Berry is dedicated to researching his novels in-depth. He and his wife, Elizabeth, founded History Matters in 2010, a nonprofit organization dedicated to aiding the preservation of the fragile reminders of our nation’s heritage. This is a great story–all of it!
In the coming weeks…one of our favorite guests…RN Marsha Podd, aka The Baby Whisperer…and author of Nickel and Dimed, Barbara Ehrenreich.
