Age is only a number for Joan Parham. This spunky critical care charge nurse from Saint Thomas DeKalb, a part of Ascension, doesn't have to work, but she *wants* to work. At 80 years young, Joan works the overnight 7pm-7am shift, putting in 36 hours a week.
"I enjoy nursing. I enjoy taking care of people", said Parham. Her boss, Nancy Trapp, says she's such an asset to the Saint Thomas DeKalb team serving as a mother figure for many of the nursing staff.
Joan loves life and loves to travel, but most of all, she loves her family. Watch her Nothing Shall Be Impossible story to find why that's precisely the reason she has to leave Saint Thomas DeKalb Hospital.
