November/December 2016 Inside Out

Please take note that there are FIVE Wednesdays this month. Our meeting falls on the FOURTH Wednesday which is November 23rd.

The deadline for tickets for our Christmas Lunch is November 26th. Don't miss out!

Starting this month we will be profiling different members of the Board so that you have the opportunity to get to know us all a little better. Since this was my idea you'll read about me first.

In recognition of the years of work that our ETs have put in to support their patients and the work of the WOA, the Conference Program Committee and the WOA Board have created a Winnipeg Ostomy Association ET Recognition Award to be presented biennially to a deserving recipient. The idea for this award was inspired by the work of Elaine Beyer, RN, BN, MSN, CETN (C) who has been involved with our chapter as far back as the late 1990s. We are so pleased to honour Elaine's work with our first ET Recognition Award for 2016. See page eight.

There are a whole batch of ideas percolating in the minds of your Board members. I foresee 2017 as being a very interesting year. Keep tuned in for more info.



Upcoming Meeting and Events:

Monthly General Meetings are held at Society for Manitobans with Disabilities Building (SMD), rooms 202 and 203, 825 Sherbrook Street, Winnipeg, MB.
