Greetings, Triad Chapter GAPNA member!

We are looking forward to having our own booth this year at our National GAPNA conference in San Diego. This is part of our recognition for receiving the Outstanding Chapter Award last year!

We need your help to make it eye-catching!

The theme is "100 Centenarians". We ask each of you to email us one or more of your patients that are 100 years old or older. There is an example attached along with a photo release that needs to be signed by your patient(s). We would like to have all your pictures by September 1st. So please ask your centenarians to participate in this great honor that we have been awarded.
