Pioneers, SRNAs: Joining Together in the Interest of Wellness

  • Aug 5, 2019

The Pioneers Meeting Intergenerational Discussion prompts conversation, uniting the pioneers of the anesthesia profession with those just entering it, student registered nurse anesthetists (SRNAs). All in attendance may offer ideas and questions. Speakers include Wilma Gillis, CRNA, APNP; Sandra Tunajek, DNP, CRNA; and Patti Parolari, MSN, CRNA.

This year, discussion will revolve around wellness - understanding how wellness needs are similar between CRNAs of retirement age and SRNAs, both in transition periods in their lives. Also, exercise and its mind/body benefits and how balancing life/work, learning, with family and physical wellness has always been a challenge.

All are welcome. The meeting will be held Sunday, Aug. 11, from 10:45 a.m. - 12 noon in Randolph 1AB, Concourse Level, East Tower, Hyatt Regency Chicago.
