Southern California SGNA

Southern California Society of Gastroenterology Nurses and Associates – Region 7


 SCSGNA president photos 007I am honored to be elected as SCSGNA President for 2013 and plan on bringing enthusiasm and excitement to this role. I was very lucky at the recent SGNA Leadership conference in Chicago to be able to have dinner with the current SGNA president, Phyllis Malpas and the president elect, Betty McGinty. Their fabulous leadership skills and commitment to gastroenterology was very awe inspiring. It was a “WOW” moment.

 My goals for 2013 are to provide excellent educational opportunities to the Southern California GI community and to increase the membership within our organization. I encourage members to share with their colleagues all of the benefits of being a member. SGNA participation both on the local and national levels helps to shape the future practice of gastroenterology and endoscopy nursing.
