 Committee Information

 
Committee Purpose
The AANA Health and Wellness Committee designs, implements, and monitors programs that foster lifelong healthy behavior decisions for AANA members. The committee mission recognizes personal and professional risk factors (such as the occupational risk for chemical dependency, workplace and personal stress, and other physical and mental disorders), and strives to address them in a manner that promotes a balanced and fulfilling personal and professional life for members. Committee work proceeds in solidarity and collaboration with the Peer Assistance Advisors Committee, over which the Health and Wellness committee has oversight. Elements of the health and wellness program include: activities and speakers at AANA meetings, including speakers for the Jan Stewart Memorial Wellness Series, multiple online resources at www.aanawellness.com and www.aana.com/studentwellness, the State Health and Wellness Resources, and the Wellness Milestones column in the AANA NewsBulletin.
