"The AANA is a stellar organization, that cares for its members as well as the public," observes Diana Quinlan, CRNA, MA, in the August 2009 AANA Journal article titled "Peer Assistance Reaches its 25th Year." She continues:
"The investment made to assist the members through the Ad Hoc Committee on Chemical Dependency, the peer assistance advisors and the wellness program demonstrate the role of advocacy over the last quarter century. The peer assistance website and the products that have been produced are referenced by healthcare providers in the United States and beyond. No other nursing organization has been this committed to this cause, or as effective. As we review our history, it is important to thank those who have dedicated many years to helping their colleagues."
