AWHONN IL Education- Inaugural Section Meeting and Coming Events

Posted By Christine M. Emmons, Thursday, October 19, 2017

AWHONN Illinois Education

Greetings AWHONN Illinois!  My name is Chris Emmons and I serve as the education coordinator for our AWHONN Illinois Section.  Please visit this site frequently for updates on chapter programs and state conference planning. 

October 18 was our inaugural Section meeting and included a new presentation platform to engage AWHONN members throughout the state.  Rita Ledbetter, MS, APN, CNM presented a live webinar on Labor Support.  Our Central IL chapter in Peoria served as the host site for this presentation and spearheaded the initiative to offer this presentation using a “Live Webinar” format to satellite locations throughout the state.  We were able to connect with several sites including our Northern IL and East Central IL Chapters.  Dena Cochran, AWHONN IL Legislative Coordinator opened Sarah Bush Lincoln Health Center in Mattoon, IL as a satellite location.  We were able to reach nearly 60 of our nursing colleagues using this format as well as 10 nursing students.  Thank you for your support. 

Meanwhile, prior to and during the meeting, our Section Chair Lori Folken provided brief interviews with our participants and periodic snapshots of the presentation via Facebook Live.  It was a successful evening.

AWHONN IL section annual Spring Conference planning is underway.  Our planning committee is hard at work planning what promises to be a phenomenal meeting at the Doubletree by Hilton in Oak Brook, IL on April 19 and 20, 2018.  Please check back for updates on our planning activities including details on topics, speakers, and registration information. 

Respectfully submitted,

Chris Emmons, MSN, CNL, MPH, RNC-NIC
