• CoronaCoronavirus (COVID-19) Resources

    In an effort to support our members with the most updated information on COVID-19 we developed this resource page to easily access current CDC information and other resources to assist you professionally and personally.

    We will continue to update this page with more information as it becomes available and welcome your input as we navigate through this situation. As health care professionals it is our job to educate our patients and families on prevention and the what to do if someone is symptomatic.

Initiatives Promote Service, Leadership, Networking, and Friendships

By Nina Ganesh Nandish

As the hustle and bustle of the holiday season comes to an end, GAPNA Great Lakes Chapter reflects on our past, our activities, our friendships, and our service to the geriatric population.

We closed out 2019 with our well-attended December quarterly meeting. The evening brought great conversations of education, leadership, and ways we as a fellowship plan on moving forward into the new decade with new initiatives.

We happily were able to donate to our two selected organizations: Little Brothers-Friends of the Elderly in the Upper Peninsula, and Fish and Loaves, a Metro Detroit food bank that helps elders make ends meet. Together we were able to send $700 in support of these charities.

As 2020 gets underway, the Great Lakes Chapter is committed to serving our senior population. Ideas of new ways to demonstrate our leadership from all parts of our state are being planned and slated for the calendar.

Our members were provided ways to participate through volunteering for some of our annual activities, with our next big event being GAPNA’s Great Lakes Chapter NP Student Mentorship Night on March 18, 2020. Plans also continue to develop and improve our annual November Geriatric Conference.

The chapter looks forward to this new year and new decade, building upon our rich history and moving us forward in service, leadership, networking, and, most importantly, friendships. GAPNA Great Lakes wishes you a happy and healthy 2020
