In October, the Center for Health, Media and Policy was thrilled to bring two women at the vanguard of nursing to NYC & DC for a series of events and media appearances. Here’s a description of the events CHMP put together for Juanita Maginley and Fiona Gold of the British Columbia Street Nursing Program. Their extraordinary work with at-risk clients on the streets of Vancouver is the subject of the award-winning documentary, “Bevel Up: Drugs, Users, and Outreach Nursing.”

This weekend, PBS’s fantastic current events show, “To The Contrary,” will air the segment they did on Maginley and Gold. Airtimes vary in different markets around the country, so check your local PBS listings. The segment will also be available on “To The Contrary’s” website beginning next week.

NYC’s own Ronnie Eldridge also sat down with Juanita Maginley and Fiona Gold for a CUNY-TV interview while they were in New York. You can check that out here.
