Viola Sowka Shifrin, RN was a graduate of the Bellevue Hospital School of Nursing, Class of 1925. She was a lifetime member of the Bellevue Alumni Association and died September 14, 1996. A very generous donation from her estate to the Hunter-Bellevue School of Nursing has made possible both the creation of a new advanced practice nursing laboratory in 2003 and this annual speaker series. Sincere appreciation goes to Loren and Shelley Ross and Charles and Barbara Kardok for making this event possible.
