      Psi at Large hosted a very successful Global Health Topics and Annual Membership Meeting April 30.  Close to 30 members and nursing students attended this event by  Zoom . Dr. Lorie Wild  spoke  about The Strengthening Care Opportunities through Partnership in Ethiopia (SCOPE) project to improve health in Ethiopian regions affected by HIV/AIDS.  This project links medical and faith community partnerships dedicated to outreach, education, and training.  She explained how HIV testing was destigmatized.   

      Madi Williamson, RN informed participants about In-Sight Collaborative.  This organization views human migration ass a journey, working with those experiencing forced displacement.  Her passion and discussion of moral injury  was both humbling and enlightening.  

      Kayla, a senior student from Northwest University presented on her fieldwork experience in West Virginia.  One example of students work was teaching hand hygiene in schools.  Students articulately described the impact of seeing the lack of resources and the need for advocacy in other parts of the United States.  Kayla provided a strong reminder for members and students of what nurses can do to improve health of humans near and far.

      The day was complete with Patrick Chiu, a doctoral student from the University of Alberta.  Patrick is a Sigma International liaison and representative at the United Nations.  Among the many ideas Patrick shared was for Sigma members to join the Global Health Community of Interest in the Circle and to review all the downloadable toolkits available through the UN site related to global health.

      The  annual membership meeting also was held with reports from all officers and standing committees.  Please contact president@psiatlarge.org to review her Power Point Presentation with all updates.

      Please consider attending the New Member Orientation on May 31 to learn more about your benefits and tips on navigating the Sigma website.
