Presidents message ~ March 2017


MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENTS

March 23rd, 2017

Thank you for visiting the website of the National Capital Chapter of the Oncology Nursing Society! We hope it is helpful in learning about the opportunities we offer as a local chapter of the ONS. Our chapter's membership spans Washington, DC and Montgomery County, MD and we are fortunate to live and work so close to our Nation's Capitol where exciting cancer research is being done at the National Institutes of Health and healthcare policy meetings are occurring weekly for various government and private organizations whose aim is to improve conditions for cancer patients. This year our chapter has continued to be involved in the Cancer Moonshot Initiative by attending meetings at the White House, we continue to offer pharmaceutical and chapter dinner meetings to our members in order to educate ourselves about different issues in oncology, and we will be sending members to ONS Congress in Denver, CO from May 4th-7th, 2017. Please stay up to date on our chapter's opportunities by signing up for email updates and following us on Facebook and Twitter. Upcoming events we are in the process of planning include forming a group to participate in the Washington, DC Purple Stride 5k on June 10th, 2017, offering a clinical trials course with CE's, and offering a networking happy hour in Friendship Heights, DC. Please feel free to contact us directly by email if you have any questions or would like to get more involved in helping us to plan more events for our members. We are currently seeking a volunteer events coordinator to assist the board in the planning of future activities. We look forward to meeting you at one of our membership meetings!
