Nurses, doctors and healthcare professionals turned out Sept. 17 to show support for the campaign that aims to upgrade Jackson.
Martha Baker, RN, and Carol Robley, ARNP, spoke at the press conference, while other SEIU Local 1991 members joined public safety officials, faith leaders, business and civic leaders and other members of the Miami-Dade communityto launch the Citizens for a Healthy Miami-Dade bond campaign.
