Heroic Arab Nurse to Visit Widener Campus

November 28, 2012

Only fifteen months ago, nurse Rula Al-Saffar remained locked in a prison in her native country of Bahrain. She was held and tortured for treating victims injured during the Arab Spring protests that fostered increased democracy across the Middle East.

Next week, the Bahraini nursing leader who graduated from Widener with a master’s degree in nursing 2000 will visit campus and tell her story in a public lecture. The lecture at 1 p.m. Thursday, December 6 in Founders Hall, Room 109, is free and open to the public. For more about her story, see the feature article “A Nursing Leader’s Nightmare” in the recent Widener Magazine.
