Flint Nurse In Hurley Discrimination Case Interviewed On Katie Couric Show [Video]

Tonya Battle, the nurse who claims that Flint’s Hurley Hospital caved into a father’s demand that no African American nurses care for his new born child, made her first nationally televised interview on the Katie Couric Show yesterday.

Tonya Battle was working as a registered nurse in Hurley’s neonatal intensive care unit , caring for a baby last October when the baby’s father asked to speak to her supervisor. The father then requested that no African American nurses care for his child. The supervisor honored his wishes. The resulting lawsuit was settled on February 22.

Tonya Battle made her appearance on the Katie Couric show yesterday along with her attorney Julie Gafkay of Frankenmuth. This was Battle’s first nationally televised interview.

Katie Couric expressed her belief that Tonya Battle was “very brave” and “did the right thing in standing up”. What do you think of her first nationally televised interview?
