    thank you so much for sharing this. Congratulations to Dr Jessica Dillard-Wright!

    I appreciate seeing fellow queer nurses gather and think together, and so appreciate this historical narrative being shared. I had similar questions to some panel members and also look forward to ongoing dialogue through these lenses and intersections…
