Attention Everyone !!

Posted almost 5 years ago by James F. Lawrence

Hello Everyone!

Several of us will be participating in a community service project at Project Open Hand next Saturday beginning at 12:30 pm. Those members who have contacted me about joining our service project include:

Tiney Ray
Nimota Adeboye 
Michelle Brown 
Dana Hickman                                                                                                                                   James Lawrence  plus 2 of his undergraduate nursing students                                                           Michelle Nelson  

If I have overlooked you or if you sent me an email earlier in the year about attending, please contact me immediately. Due to some cancellations by other members, I currently have 4 open spots that I would like to fill in order to have a total number of 12 volunteers present. I must notify POH by Wednesday of this upcoming week in order for them to plan appropriately for the number of volunteers that will be present. 

Can 4 additional members please step up to the plate to assist me in having 12 of us present on Saturday?? If interested  please let me know via cell phone or email by noon on Wednesday.


Last Friday, I was on Star 94.1 radio talk show discussing national NP week and the many planned events that will take place in celebration of the week. The discussion also included my opinion of how Georgia CNSs and NPs can provide the solution to the shortage of primary care physicians as Georgia ranks as one of the lowest states in their number of primary care physicians. Did anyone catch the interview? If you did, I would like to receive your feedback on the interview.
