New England Chapter Engages Members

By Monica Dube

The New England Chapter continues to work on engagement of our members. The Chapter’s first virtual conference was a financial success with 27 members attending.

The speakers were awesome, presenting on varied topics including eye diseases, pharmacogenetics, and wound care. It was a great educational opportunity. Planning is underway for our next conference which will be in person.

The next Wine Wednesday is scheduled for September 8, 2021. A charity event is planned for October/November.

Our marketing consultant has been invaluable, posting items specific to geriatrics and general health updates on Facebook and Instagram. We are using social media to spread the word about the benefits of being a GAPNA member.

The chapter is actively recruiting for the president-elect and student member board positions. Our “notebook” for important chapter information is expanding. We plan to make all information accessible to board members as needed.
