Update from the New England Region of the Wound, Ostomy, Continence Nurses Society:

There is a lot going on in the region and Spring has finally arrived.

Congratulations to NERWOCN Board member Marian Barry-Ravagni for being recognized in The Boston Globe Salute to Nurses for her upbeat attitude. She was nominated by the daughter of one of her patients at Hallmark Health VNA and Hospice. We love everything about Marian, especially her enthusiastic efforts as the Youth Rally Chair.

The deadline to submit your application for nursing at the Youth Rally is June 1st, 2018. Contact Marian Barry-Ravagni for more information or visit the Youth Rally website.

Will you be in Philadelphia for the Wound Ostomy Continence Nurses Society conference June 3 – 6, 2018? We will be celebrating 50 years of WOC Nursing. The New England Region of the WOC Nurses Society will hold a regional meeting there on Sunday morning, June 3rd, 2018 at 7:00 am. Our meeting will be held at The Philadelphia Marriott Downtown across the street from the convention center. The meeting will be held in Franklin Hall 9. A breakfast buffet will be served. I hope to see you there.

If you are not going to be there, WOCN will have free live streaming of the conference for members of the Society. Please go to their website for details.

The New England Region of the Wound Ostomy Continence Nurses Society will hold our annual Fall Conference in Manchester New Hampshire on October 19th & 20th, 2018. This is a new location for us and details will be coming in June. If you are interested in doing a Poster Presentation or Challenge in Practice, I have included the flyers for both.

I hope to see you in Philly!!

Mary Willis President, New England Region of the Wound Ostomy Continence Nurses Society
