This year, World Health Day is focusing on the fantastic work of nurses and midwives. 7th April 2020 marks the day that we celebrate the staff that perform a vital role in keeping the world healthy.
Their places of work span from hospitals, nursing homes and rehabilitation centres, which can be environments of new life and healing. Most recently, work has begun on understanding the healing properties of plants and gardens within these settings.
A study at Texas A & M University concentrated on the health benefits that patients experience by simply looking at plants and gardens. These effects can happen in five minutes or less. That’s really showing the power of nature.
For World Health Day 2020, we give focus to the incredible staff who work towards better health for us all and hope that the power of plants bring even more prosperity to them throughout the year.
