Born into a wealthy family, she fought her family’s opposition and social constraints to become the world’s most famous nurse. As we discuss about flatening the COVID19 curve, we cannot but remember that she was also a pioneer in data visualisation with the use of infographics, the Nightingale rose diagram, to represent statistical data.On the bicentenary of the Lady with the Lamp, celebrated as #InternationalNursesDay, support the work of our nurses and healthcare workers.Here are some giving options:https://www.givingtuesdayindia.org/story-details/771https://www.givingtuesdayindia.org/story-details/706https://www.givingtuesdayindia.org/story-details/774#EveryTuesday#CoronaKindness#GivingTuesdayIndia#GivingTuesdayNOW
