OAK BROOK – This October, the Adventist Midwest Health hospitals will host the 19th International Caritas Consortium, welcoming in nurses from all over the world.

The international consortium is facilitated by nursing theorist Jean Watson, in collaboration with the Watson Caring Science Institute. It will take place Oct. 10 to 11 at the Hyatt Lodge at the McDonald’s Campus, 2815 Jorie Blvd. in Oak Brook.

Already signed up for the event are nurses from North Carolina, New Hampshire, Florida, Colorado and South Africa.
