Welcome to a lecture where we can learn more about the Red Cross, four-time Nobel Prize laureate: three times through the organisation and once through its founder. We will also meet nurses who have worked for the Red Cross and received medals for their contributions at various front lines around the world.
Olof Somell, project manager at the Nobel Prize Museum, will tell about the Red Cross, which received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1917, 1944 and 1963, and about Henri Dunant, founder of the Red Cross and the first Nobel Peace Prize Laureate in 1901.
After the lecture, we will meet Red Cross nurses Katarina Öberg, Ingrid Andersson, Maud Amrén and Lena Netjaeff, who have all been awarded the Florence Nightingale Medal for their work. Other speakers will be Margareta Wahlström, former president of the Swedish Red Cross, and Susanne Georgsson, Vice Chancellor at the Swedish Red Cross University College.
Welcome to the Swedish Red Cross University College, who has educated nurses since 1867, when it was founded as a nursing school with Emmy Rappe as director.
