Scholarship Event

Good Morning,

I am writing to regretfully inform you that the Scholarship Research Evening scheduled for Wednesday, April 23rd from 5pm-7pm in the Bellin College Atrium has been cancelled. The goal of the local Chapter of Sigma Theta Tau was to provide area clinicians who are actively engaged in clinical practice, research, and process improvement, a format to disseminate and share the innovative and quality practices they are either working on or implementing in their health care organizations. At this time we have made a decision to postpone the event until a future date. We, in the near future, again hope to extend an invitation for participation in this event with the goal of having a diverse number of projects to share amongst your health care peers in our community. The work that we do as professionals is integral to the continued provision of quality health care, and the ability to share this information with others engaged in active nursing practice is key ongoing care provision improvement.

For those of you that had submitted an abstract for a poster I would like to thank you for your willingness to participate and share. I hope that you will please consider participation in this event in the future. As acting president of the board of Sigma Theta Tau I again apologize for the cancelation and I want to thank you for your understanding with regard to this change. I look forward to working with many of you in the future.

Take Care,

Susan Rymer
