Based on Ren Capucao's dissertation research with support from Virginia Humanities, the Philippine Nurses Association of Virginia, and the Bjoring Center, "A Culture to Care" tells the intertwined histories of the Philippines and the U.S. through the perspective of nursing, which dates back to the early 20th century and American imperialism. Since the 1970s, Filipinos have become the largest group of internationally educated nurses practicing in the U.S.
