Jul. 10, 2018

Maria Farrow, MSN, APRN–BC, nurse practitioner, at the first spine symposium at the Daniel and Jane Och Spine Hospital at NewYork-Presbyterian.

The Daniel and Jane Och Spine Hospital at NewYork-Presbyterian hosted its first symposium on spinal care, and New York Presbyterian nurse practitioner Maria Farrow was able to attend the event, held in May during Nurses Week.
