PLEASE NOTE THE MEETINGS FOR JULY AND AUGUST 2020 ARE CANCELLED
The usual meeting format is vendor sponsored education, alternating with affiliate peer clinical sharing as well as a business meeting and planning for our fall affiliate conference.
Dinner is provided at the meeting.
We plan an educational conference held in the fall for the RNs in our community. We develop and present this conference to keep the professional community in our area up to date on the latest information and technology as it relates to continence, ostomy, and skin and wound care.
