Southern Nursing Research Society is hosting its 2018 annual meeting in Atlanta. They are hosting a pre-conference event that you will not want to miss (see attached flyer for details): 

"Community Members and Researchers Addressing the Opioid Crisis"

Southern Nursing Research Society was founded in 1986 when sixty nurses met in Atlanta and debated the possibility of an organization for nursing researchers in the southern region. In 1987, SNRS was declared an independent organization. In 1992 and 1993, several organizational procedures were streamlined and formalized, Society archives were established and strategic planning was initiated. 
There are 14 states in the Society region: Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, and West Virginia. In 1991, the boundaries were expanded to include the Caribbean, Latin America and the Bahamas. 
The mission of the Society is to Advance Nursing Research through 
·         Dissemination and utilization of research findings 
·         Facilitating the career development of nurses and nursing students as researchers 
·         Promoting the image of nursing as a scientific discipline 
·         Enhancing communication among members 
Our annual meeting will be held in Atlanta in 2018. The theme of the community education event will focus on the mounting opioid crisis. The overall theme for the SNRS Annual meeting, "Expanding Nursing Science in Population and Global Health".
