President's Welcome

Burke SusanSavannah, Georgia – known for its friendly atmosphere, elegance, and charm! I invite you to join me at APHON’s 42nd annual conference in this historic city, nicknamed the Hostess City of the South, where we will be celebrating our theme: “Creating Connections: Shaping Tomorrow.” The Conference Planning Committee has done an amazing job of putting together a conference packed with dynamic speakers, outstanding content, and fun activities. We will be uplifted by our opening keynote address “Never Ever Give Up”, an inspiring story of a young girl named Jessie and her Joy Jars, and a closing session that focuses on Nurses Caring for Nurses: Changing the Culture of Nursing. Whether you are new to pediatric hematology/oncology nursing or a seasoned veteran, this conference offers something for everyone. It provides a great opportunity to advance your knowledge, rekindle old friendships, and create new connections.

So get ready to connect, recharge and reboot as you explore opportunities to shape the future for children with cancer and blood disorders. APHON’s conference is an annual event that I look forward to and I hope I will have the opportunity to share this experience with many of you.
