Mar 23, 2018

Alumna Katelyn Plug was in the news recently for her volunteer work on a hospital ship.

Plug graduated from McMaster with a BScN in 2011. She works at McMaster Children's Hospital.

"I went on Mercy Ships (to Cameroon) to work as a nurse on board the world's largest humanitarian hospital ship. Mercy Ships is an organization that provides free surgical care to those who cannot afford it and do not have access in their home countries for that kind of surgery. They'll go into the remote areas of the country in which they're docked and they will offer these surgeries to people who meet the criteria," says Plug.
