A Rossland native is moving on from her Ebola experience in west Africa to the post-earthquake challenges of Nepal.
Nurse Patrice Gordon is off to a rural area as part of a Canadian Red Cross Emergency Response Team.
She’ll be the team leader.
Gordon – who practices in the Chilcotin but has a home in Rossland- made headlines when she was quarantined in Kelowna in December.
She had returned from the Ebola crisis in Sierra Leone feeling ill and spent weeks in isolation as a precautionary measure.
