Infusion Nurses Society Announces Elizabeth Smart as Keynote Speaker

Infusion Nurses Society
Posted on: 26 Apr 18

NORWOOD, Mass., April 24, 2018 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Infusion Nurses Society (INS) is heading to the shores of Lake Erie and the bustling city of Cleveland, Ohio for INS 2018, the society's Annual Meeting and Industrial Exhibition. This year's meeting will include 4 days of evidence-based information on the infusion specialty, other health-related educational sessions, peer presentations, round-table discussions, as well as dozens of presenters and speakers. Visit for a complete schedule and registration information.

In a captivating keynote address, Elizabeth Smart will share her story of perseverance in the face of unimaginable adversity. Abducted at knife point from her home in 2002 at age 14, then raped, drugged, and abused for 9 months, Elizabeth's ordeal gripped the nation. Incredibly, after witnesses spotted Elizabeth walking with her captors on a public street, she was safely returned to her family in March 2003.

Her address not only tells her personal story, but also discusses topics such as overcoming extreme adversity, the importance and process of recovery, and not allowing your past to dictate your future. She reminds her audiences not to compare themselves or their personal traumas to anyone else's, because everyone's situation is unique. There is no "one-size fits all" formula to healing but learning to love yourself again is one of the first steps.

Other highlights for INS 2018 attendees will include a chance to:

Test their infusion IQ in an interactive quiz show

Ask infusion nurse experts about the top 10 most common questions and answers

Collaborate in a 2-hour boot camp on immunoglobulin therapy

Accompanying the education, attendees can roam the jam-packed exhibition hall, experience a special event at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, and enjoy countless networking opportunities with colleagues.
