A letter from our President, Kathy Gutmann
Welcome to a brand new (and hopefully healthier) 2021! Many of us are still in a state of flux with wondering when we will return to in person learning, while others may wish they could return to the virtual world and safety of our homes.
We are also anxiously awaiting the availability of the new COVID vaccine for school nurses. Two of my family members have already received their first dose and are due for the second this week. Both tolerated it without any side effects or sudden urges to buy APPLE products!
We are gearing up for our January presentation with Dr. Mark Halstead on Pediatric Sports Injuries. We hope to again offer CEU’s for this presentation and hope you will join us. February is also in the works with a presentation from Safe Connections which will focus on how school nurses can best support victims of sexual violence.
We continue to look for new faces to join not only our membership but also our committee’s and executive board. It’s a great way to expand your professional footprint, meet your professional goals, and looks amazing on your annual evaluation! Consider joining us at a board meeting to see what we’re all about. We truly take the team approach and work together to make SLSSNA happen.
Please join us Thursday January 21st via Zoom for Dr. Halstead’s presentation. Starting at 4:30 and we’ll have you home by 6:00.
Stay safe, Stay healthy, and take care of yourselves in 2021!
