Nurses Week

Health-care professionals and workers play important roles in the lives of many people, especially so as COVID-19 impacts our community and America. Prior to National Nurses Week May 6-12, The Salem News and local businesses are going to salute not only the nursing profession with an April 28 special section in the newspaper, but all people in the health-care field. We want you to take part.

Everyone has a story about a doctor, nurse or health-care worker who went above and beyond the call of duty to impact a life. We want you to tell us that story. Simply send us a Facebook message, email the story to or mail to The Salem News, P.O. Box 798, Salem, MO 65560. Deadline is Wednesday, April 22. We will share your story in print or online.
