Two pediatric nurses from St. Maarten Medical Center recently attended the 43rd Annual International Neonatology Conference in Miami Beach, Florida. Nurse Corazon Landicho and Nurse Carina Celestijn spent three days learning about the latest pediatric resources, innovations, and advances in respiratory care.
The trip was made possible by the sponsorship of the Nestle Company, which provided Nurse Landicho and Nurse Celestijn with the all-expenses-paid trip to attend the conference.
