AGNA AGM and Education Day 2020 Postponement

Posted by on Mar 20, 2020 in Health System News | 0 comments

The purpose of AGNA is to bring together nurses who are interested in gerontology and whose intent is to improve the health, wellness, and quality of life of older adults. This, along with our mission to provide leadership in promoting excellence in gerontological nursing, has guided us, your provincial executive, to make the decision to postpone our annual general meeting and education day until the fall of 2020. We are in challenging times and the health and welfare of others needs to be our primary concern.  Our focus needs to be with our peers, colleagues, family, friends, and community in the battle against the COVID-19 virus spread. I will keep you posted on future plans and hope that as time passes we can reconnect to have shared learning and to share experiences. For those who registered for the event, you will receive notification of your registration fee refund. If you booked to stay at the venue, I would like to remind you to cancel your hotel reservation to avoid any charges. Thank you for your understanding and we hope to see you in the fall. Edythe Andison President -Alberta Gerontological Nurses...
