The California Action Coalition is moving forward with great enthusiasm to develop and implement strategies associated with the 8 recommendations in the Institute of Medicine's Future of Nursing Report, and there is an event coming up that will allow nurses and consumers to identify the necessary actions needed to improve health in California and the role nurses should take to advance this vision. The discussions at this event will align with the recommendations contained in the report and should result in some very helpful guidance to the work groups.
A town-hall meeting will be held in Sacramento on Thursday, August 4, 2011 from 11 AM - 1 PM to bring consumers and health care professionals together to identify priorities to improve California's health. For those of you who live in the Sacramento area, this is an excellent opportunity to voice your concerns, ideas and solutions. If you'd like to attend the town-hall meeting, all you need to do is complete the online RSVP form at sonresvp.com by July 28, 2011, and show up at the meeting which will be held at the UC Davis Cancer Center Auditorium. I'm planning to be there and hope you can be, too!
