Epsilon Theta Wins Coveted Chapter Key Award for Third Time!

Davika (pictured above, center) accepted the 2017 Chapter Key Award from outgoing STTI President, Cathy Catrombone (left, above), and outgoing CEO, Pat Thompson (right, above). The Chapter Key award, which was established in 1991, honors STTI chapters that excel in chapter-related activities such as membership recruitment and retention; publicity and programming; and professional and leadership development. More than 2,000 colleagues representing approximately 30 countries attended the conference to share knowledge that will help improve the health of the world’s people. The convention, which was themed “Influence Through Action: Advancing Global Health, Nursing, and Midwifery” enabled attendees to  an exciting environment to develop new relationships and collaborations through networking with nurse leaders and to celebrate the global nursing community.
