Now in its third year, I AM ME is an annual AANA award-winning social media campaign celebrating diversity and inclusion within the nurse anesthesia profession. Every April—aka Celebrate Diversity Month— Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists (CRNAs) and nurse anesthesia students are encouraged to share a photo and "I AM ME” statement with colleagues. The submission consists of a photo and three statements in which CRNAs and SRNAs describe “what makes you, you.”

Nearly 54,000 strong, the AANA acknowledges the differences in race, gender, ethnicity, language, cultural and religious beliefs, and socio-economic status that our CRNA and SRNA members bring to the nurse anesthesia profession. #AANADiversity #IAmMe
