Nurses Organize Cookout at K.H.M.H.

It’s nurses week and the K.H.M.H. nurses took a little break to celebrate with a cookout competition.  Nurses from Philippines, Jamaica, Guyana, Nigeria, Cuba, and Nicaragua, along with the Belizean nursing staff made their cultural foods and put on a creative food displays in the parking lot of the hospital. We stopped by for a quick look at the nurses’ culinary skills.
