AMWF Raises Funds from the AANN Advances in Stroke Care Conference
The Agnes Marshall Walker Foundation (AMWF) raised over $1,000 at the AANN Advances in Stroke Care Conference, which took place September 25-26th in Chicago, IL! The Stroke Conference was very successful, selling out at 260 attendees. AMWF is proud to have supported four nurses to attend this conference with the AANN Advances in Stroke Care Conference Travel Grant!
“At this conference, I learned about health care systems and quality. As a stroke data abstractor nurse, this was very helpful to me and enabled me to recognize quality and data process opportunities within my health system. This was my first professional networking conference, and I am so thankful to the Foundation for providing me with this opportunity. You have further inspired me to continue to pursue stroke as my nursing passion and commit myself to continual education and career advancement for the betterment of my patients.” - Loretta J. Webb, winner of an AMWF Advances in Stroke Care Conference Travel Grant
If you are interested in attending the AANN Stroke Conference in 2016, new travel grant applications will be available Spring 2016!
