About the Luminary Project

The Luminary Project was originally launched by Health Care Without Harm, the University of Maryland School of Nursing and the American Nurses Association in 2005 to promote the work of nurses who are advocating for safe hospitals, clean communities, and children born without toxic chemicals in their bodies. The Luminary website shined a light on nurses creating a healthier environment for all. As stated by Barbara Sattler, now an ANHE Board member at the launch, “Nurses are natural catalysts. We are constantly solving problems and improving our practice. But we almost never take the chance to be recognized. The Luminary Project lets us do that in a way that inspires others to build on our collective experiences.”

Now, the Alliance of Nurses for Healthy Environments is thrilled to be rejuvenating this project and shining a light on all of the amazing work nurses do every day in support of healthier world for us all.
