Greetings!

The Haitian American Nurses Association of Tampa (HANA of Tampa) would like to say welcome or “Bienvenu” to our 5th Annual Scholarship Awards & Fundraising Gala “Journey to Wakanda”. This year in conjunction with our gala we will be hosting a 1-day cultural symposium entitled: “Understanding the dynamics of the Haitian culture in medical and mental health management”. We determined that with our growing population of Haitian communities in the Tampa Bay area there is a need to increase cultural awareness of our culture amongst our fellow medical and mental health colleagues. During this symposium you will be able to gain an abundance of pertinent information about the Haitian culture while earning CME and CEU credits for your participation. In addition, we look forward to awarding up to 2 undergraduate nursing scholarships to local Hillsborough County nursing students. We truly hope you will join us for a day of meaningful information and networking, as well as, an opportunity to enjoy an elegant evening of accolades and entertainment. So, as our Yoruba friends would say, “E je ki a rin irin ajo lo si Wakanda” (let us journey to Wakanda)!

 

Cordially yours,

 

Edline Pierre, MSN, APRN, FNP-BC
