Wellness Activities at AANA Meetings

CRNAs Going the Distance - San Francisco 2012​

The Fun 5K walk/run at the 2012 Annual Meeting in San Francisco was enjoyed by all!​ ​ The morning was cool yet beautiful with clear view of the Golden Gate bridge, Alcatraz, San Francisco bay and the city's skyline. 

CRNAs indeed went the distance - over 400 CRNAs, students, their families, and friends got up very early to participate in this fun and positive event! Good wellness break for meeting attendees to enjoy the company of their colleagues, get some exercise, and benefit safe surgery worldwide; $9,200 was donated to Lifebox - see more on this story. 

Thank you 2012 Elite Sponsor CNA, to the participants and volunteers, and state associations that joined in "backing CRNA wellness"!
