SAGE would like to extend our gratitude to all of the incredible nurses and healthcare workers as National Nurses Week comes to a close. Nurses play an integral role in the healthcare system and they continue to keep our communities safe during the pandemic. It’s important that we stand with nurses and call for the repeal of Bill 124.
