2017 Board Service Initiative for Emerging Nurse Leaders

The Florida Action Coalition, as a program of the Florida Center for Nursing and with support from the Florida Blue Foundation, is pleased to open the application period to be considered for membership in the 2017 Board Service Initiative for Emerging Nurse Leaders.  More than ever, boards need strong, strategic contributors who can speak to the health needs of their communities. Up to 30 highly qualified nurses will be selected to participate in a three month course led by an expert in the field. The Board Service class participants will be taught the responsibilities as stewards of organizational board membership as well as the principles of governance that power exceptional boards. Nurses are by the nature of their work continuous learners, adaptive to change, results oriented, have the highest integrity, and are constructive partners. Graduates will be prepared to serve on a policy making board, committee or task force in Florida.

For more information and to access the online application, please visit the FL-AC web page.  Application deadline is August 8, 2017.

President's Corner
Brown Bag Lunch at Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa
Tampa, FL June 15, 2017

I’m glad to announce that we just had our third Brown Bag Lunch in the Tampa area. Brown Bag Lunches are a chance for FPHA members and potential members to meet with those who live and work close by each other. For this lunch we were hosted by the Moffitt Cancer Center.

We had a small group of about fourteen with half being local area FPHA members and half from Moffitt Cancer Center. It gave us a chance to talk a little about FPHA for those who were interested in joining and bring others up to date. It was really great to hear what is going on with the folks at Moffitt.  It’s just amazing to see that public health professionals are everywhere.

We anticipate doing at least one or two more Brown Bag Lunches in our Tampa area before the year ends. Did you know that you can host your own Brown Bag lunch for members and non-members, too? All you need is an available conference room. And don’t forget, since everyone brings their own lunch there is essentially no cost. “Hello” name tags are really cheap. Let us know if you are interested in hosting for your area and we can help out with some pointers.

Thanks,

Rick
