THE FOLLOWING EMAIL WAS SENT TO ME TO SHARE WITH ANY ANNA MEMBER WHO IS INTERESTED-please respond directly to Sandy Bodin at the emil or phone number below.
Dear Carol,
ANNA has an urgent need for volunteers with expertise in cultural diversity/cultural competency. ANNA President Donna Painter has been asked by the American Nurses Association (ANA) to appoint an ANNA member to serve on a work group tasked with revising the ANA Cultural Diversity position statement. Candidates should possess a good understanding of how diverse backgrounds, ethnicities, lifestyles, cultures, experiences, interests and talents distinguish and unify individuals and groups from one another. The ANA workgroup will communicate via e-mail and several conference calls. If you have expertise in the area of cultural diversity and are interested in representing ANNA on this workgroup, please let us know by going to the ANNA Resource Corps and clicking 'Yes' next to the Cultural Diversity/Cultural Competency area of strength.[link=""]click here for ANNA Resource Corps[/link]
Since you are already registered in the Resource Corps, this will just take a minute to do. It is easy and you may find other interesting opportunities too!

Thank you!
Sandy Bodin
Resource Corps Advisor
American Nephrology Nurses' Association

Hello Chapter Members; welcome to the Heart of America Website.
We are so looking forward to sharing news about our chapter and hopefully you all will feel compelled to submit a bit of your news and thoughts from time to time.
Every year the chapter officers submit information about what activities the members are participating in . Have any of you been speaking publicly or getting involved
in any public political forums for nephrology or nursing? Have any of you done any volunteer B/p checks or collaborated with another organization to do some health care
teaching or monitoring?  If so, let us know. We'd love to hear about it. We'd love to add your story to our News page. Know anyone who has just joined ANNA, let us know
Hope to see some of you in Boston at the National ANNA Conference.  Email me and let me know you're going and I'll look for you.
