From people “living positively” with AIDS to women artisans supporting entire communities and nurses on the frontlines of our health care system, Carolyn Jones has devoted her career to celebrating invisible populations and breaking down barriers. Her most widely acclaimed book publications include Living Proof: Courage in the Face of AIDS and The American Nurse, which led to a feature documentary and Carolyn's inclusion as a "citizen diplomat" in the State Department's "American Film Showcase." Her latest project is the forthcoming documentary film, Defining Hope, which tells the story of patients that are living life to the fullest, even as they are facing death, and the nurses that guide them to an understanding of what makes life worth living. During her time interviewing nurses and documenting their stories, Carolyn discovered nurses often are so busy they don't realize the importance and special qualities they bring to health care. Carolyn will encourage nurses to rediscover their importance and celebrate the successes and stories of their profession.
