Congratulations, your accomplishments in the specialties of women’s health, obstetric and neonatal nursing, as well as your contributions to our Association are exemplary.
The Awards of Excellence honor AWHONN members recognized by their peers as exemplifying the highest standards of service to nursing. This year the Awards of Excellence are based on four categories: Education, Community Service, Practice, and Research. Nominations are sought from AWHONN members and selected by the AWHONN Board of Directors.
The CDC has now confirmed that the Zika virus causes microcephaly and other neurological birth defects. The CDC came to this conclusion after months of careful evaluation and a number reports showing a connection between the brain disorders. The findings have been published in The New England Journal of Medicine. For now the CDC’s recommendations and guidance for pregnant women remains the same. AWHONN’s 2016 class of Emerging Leaders had a series of meetings on Capitol Hill last month and continues to advocate for the Zika funding. See all our Zika updates
