Nurses Honored by Dunkin' Donuts

The Greater Baltimore area Dunkin' Donuts' “Thanks to You” heroes program salutes a different group of local heroes each month by offering them a free medium coffee every Tuesday.

This month, it's nurses who are being honored. Any Tuesday in August, nurses can receive the free coffee by showing their hospital badge.

Sinai Hospital nurses joined WJZ's Ron Matz this morning to kick off the celebration. Lia Walker, RN, BSN, a Sinai Labor and Delivery nurse and Maryland Hospital Association nursing representative for the Who Will Care? initiative, spoke with Matz about her career and the need for nurses.

Walker is now in her eighth year of working at Sinai. A native of Pennsylvania, she received her nursing degree from the University of Maryland, and has worked in Labor and Delivery for the past three years.

Dunkin' Donuts will honor teachers in September, firefighters in October, veterans and active military personnel in November, and police officers in December. Stores participating include Baltimore city, Baltimore County, and Anne Arundel, Carroll, Cecil, Harford, Howard, Talbot, Queen Anne and Kent counties.
