Congratulations continue to be heaped on Nurse Soria Dupie-Winston for copping this year’s “Caribbean Nurse of the Year” award.
Last weekend, Dupie-Winston, the President of the Antigua and Barbuda Nurses Association, took the top honour from a slate of other regional contenders at the 32nd Biennial Caribbean Nurses Conference, held in Jamaica.
The United Progressive Party has already praised Nurse Dupie-Winston, and the Ministry of Health, Wellness and the Environment is now extending its congratulations.
Minister of Health Sir Molwyn Joseph, along with the management and staff at the Ministry, commended her for receiving this prestigious award in recognition of her hard work and dedication throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.
Dupie-Winston is currently stationed at the Ministry of Health headquarters as a Nurse Epidemiologist.
She is one of eight nurses to have received such recognition this year. The other recipients were from Anguilla, Jamaica, Barbados, Saint Lucia, Trinidad and Tobago.
Dupie-Winston was among a 12-member delegation that represented Antigua and Barbuda during the conference, which ran from October 8-15.
