Hello Region 1,
Our Regional Meeting in Brooklyn, New York was a success, as they all are. I am ever so grateful to Alvin Mangubat, Angel Martinez, Manuel Torres, Jane Franklin, Sharon Hylton-Burke Mei-Kuen Lam, NYU Langone Medical Center for hosting our meeting this last weekend (June 9th). We had 75 people in attendance, and 7 lectures and 6 vendors, if we had more room we could have had even more. They were all pleased with the attendees and how receptive they were. The lectures were very educational. A lot of great networking as well as Breakfast and Lunch were great and we received great reviews which always makes us all feel good. The Mount Sinai Group Photo. The following people are in the picture: Yafa Gavrielova, Valerie Day (MS BI) , Sergui Vieru, Francis Dionisio, Fe Asumadu, Joshua Villar, Cynthia Eaton, Frank Campos, Junior Cameron, and Juan Vargas. We are waiting for more pictures. As I receive them I will have them added.
We have the potential even more meetings in Region 1 this year, just another record breaker for us. I also talked to a few individuals about holding even more meetings in 2019. We have one meeting being planned as we speak in New Jersey as well. This meeting will be in September, but we do not have a definitive date yet, however I will keep you all informed the progress as it becomes available to me. Then, in November of this year, we are potentially having another meeting in Danvers, Massachusetts. When you host a meeting, you are providing much needed CEU’s for your fellow Anesthesia Technicians and Technologists. If you would like to host a meeting or learn how, send me an email or call me. Keep checking on the ASATT website for information on all meetings. Please email topics that you would like to have presented at the meetings.
