  2. The CRNAs at Ingham Regional Medical Center, Lansing, Mich., wanted to turn the Fifth Annual Nurse Anesthetist Week into a "Focus on Others" week. While other medical centers celebrate Anesthetist Week by focusing on the CRNA staff, the CRNAs at Ingham Regional Medical Center wanted the focus to be on others. To educate the general public, the CRNAs had a group photo taken and had the photo made into posters (PDF version). These posters were placed outside of the medical center’s cafeterias.
    The CRNAs sponsored a lunch for both campuses of the medical center.
    The highlight of the week was that the CRNAs had a new blanket drive. All the new blankets that were collected were delivered to a local mission. The local mission then provided those blankets to those in need free of charge.
