Wesley alumnus Chris Foard M'10 and his wife Marianne donated items from their historical nursing collection for use at Wesley’s new Health Sciences Building's display case. The display represents years of collecting rare pieces focusing on Florence Nightingale as well as the nursing profession as a whole. Some items dated back to the Civil War and earlier. The exhibit was unveiled in a ceremony on March 5 that included the Foards, students, faculty, administrators and staff. Visit Wesley’s flickr page to see more photos from this event.
