Our year of preparation for NEAOHN's 100 Year Anniversary paid off as NEAOHN was highlighted throughout the 2015 AAOHN Conference in Boston. Over 200 northeast members were in attendance which represented approximately 20-25 % of attendees! The AAOHN Foundation's Opening Reception featured an OHN History Museum with many posters and treasures of our nursing profession as well as our northeast State Chapter and Member achievements.
Pippa White, the Catherine Dempsey lecturer, presented "Love in Action". Pippa's theatrical presentation depicted the lives of our pioneer leaders highlighting the successes and challenges in the origin of occupational health nursing. NEAOHN hosted a party for our members at the hotel's Comedy Club where over 100 members reminisced with their peers, enjoyed a historical slide show and had fun taking pictures with friends in a photo booth sponsored by our Massachusetts State Chapter. A 175-page Commemorative Booklet was published for each attendee on their flash drive. Click the link below to learn more about our history. The Historical Video link will be available soon.
