President's Message

Greetings to All,


I hope that all is well with each and every one of you.
It is with great anticipation that I write this newsletter
to you. We had a great 2007 and we will have an even
greater 2008.

In March 2007 we participated in the Hispanic
Education Endowment Fund by volunteering our services
of interviewing students for scholarships. Myself and other members joined MANA O.C.

On April 27th, we had our Dia De Los Ninos workshop on infant adoption in our Hispanic Community. This event was held at the Sisters of St. Joseph’s library and sponsored by the Latino Family Institute.

On May 19th-20th, we coordinated a health booth at St. Callistus Church Festival in Garden Grove. Services provided included, glucose screening, blood pressure checks and health information. This event was sponsored by Garden Grove Medical Center a Tenet Hospital.

On July 17th-20th, we attended the 32nd Annual NAHN National Conference at the Pacific Palms Resort, Industry Hills, CA.

On Saturday, October 27th, we had our Annual Dia De Los Muertos Conference. The subject was Hospice in the Hispanic Context. Our keynote speaker was Dr. Gilbert Mares from Cuidado Casero, Arlington, Texas. We also had Marion Townsend, RN, BSN, Administrator and Director of Nursing, Interim Home Health, Riverside, CA. Gloria Juarez, RN, PhD gave us information on perspectives of hospice and the Hispanic Family.

In December, we participated in the Tamalada sponsored by the MANA Organization. We made tamales, which were given to families in need at Christmas.

Finally, we will have the realization of our own OC NAHN website. Our website will provide vital information on our organization. On behalf of OCNAHN, I extend our appreciation to those members who are working on this project along with our chairperson Christina Gonzalez.

On April 19th we are collaborating with Santa Ana College School of Nursing and St. Joseph Hospital in presenting our 6th Annual Dia de los Niño’s Event “ Nursing: A Great Career Choice” We will focus on 7th to 12th grade students, parents, guardians, prospective nursing students, faculty, and professional nurses.

We need each and every one of you so if your membership has expired do renew so we can continue our mission.

Hasta Luego,

Adelina Garcia
