Terri Schiavo
Posted: 12/2/2003 at 2:13:26 PM

Thank you for highlighting Betty Benson regarding her outstanding contributions to nursing, end-of-life care and health care ethics in the Nov. 17 Denver’s Nursing Star.

Dear Editor: I’m writing in regard to the article "Community Colleges Bashed" in your Oct. 6 edition. Linda Rener was right on target with her remarks.
