  • Volunteer Opportunity-February 26, 2023

    We hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season.  We are starting our DFW ANIA year again and teaming up with JPS Hospital to volunteer to work a water station at the Cowtown Marathon on Sunday, February 26th from 6 am to 930 am. This is an excellent opportunity to meet each other and assist our community.  Please use the link below to let us know if you are coming.  Feel free to invite family or friends to help, all are welcome.

  • Opportunity to Give on November 13th

    We have a wonderful opportunity to partner with Community Crossroads to help collect food to fill Thanksgiving baskets for families in need.  They will also be contributing a turkey for all the baskets.  I have attached a list of the foods that they will need to fill the baskets.  If you want to help contribute, I will be picking up any donated items at NRH2O on Sunday, November 13th from 2 pm to 3 pm.  This is a fantastic way to help so many families that would otherwise not be able to have a Thanksgiving meal.  Please consider collecting at your office or from friends and bring your donations on the 13th so I can get them to Community Crossroads for distribution the next week.   

    Also, if you do not have plans for the Wednesday before Thanksgiving, November 23rd; they are looking for people to assist in serving a Thanksgiving meal to the homeless in the area that they serve.  If you are interested in doing this, you will need to be at Community Crossroads by 6 pm and serve until around 7 pm.  They are extremely excited that this is the first year that they will be offering this service and want to make sure it is successful so they can continue to offer it in the future.  The address is 1516 Hemphill St, Fort Worth, 76104. They welcome anyone's assistance.  

    Thank you once again for being willing to assist those in need in our community.

  • CEU Offering

    At the national ANIA conference this last April in Florida many of our board members got the opportunity to meet and brainstorm with other ANIA chapters. One of the ideas was to start collaborating on continuing education.  We all felt this would benefit everyone by giving access to more CE opportunities related to the field of informatics, allow us to see what other hospitals are doing outside of our own communities, and eventually partner on panel discussions making them more robust.  So, in addition to the CE opportunities your DFW chapter will be offering we will also be sending out information for you to partake in these additional CE opportunities offered by partnering ANIA chapters.  The Miami ANIA chapter has sent us a flyer to distribute for a CE offered on July 1st. I hope many of you will be able to attend.  Don’t forget our next DFW ANIA webinar will be July 23rd a flyer will be going out shortly with all the details. 

    Upcoming CE opportunities to look for:

    • July 1st – Nurses’ views on change management in health care settings: A qualitative study sponsored by Miami ANIA chapter
    • July 23rd – Medical City and University of MA Hospital at home journey, update on study “Nurses' experiences using their EHRs from 2015 to 2020” and Regulatory Updates offered by DFW ANIA
    • August date TBD – Provider Onboarding: How we successfully adapted during a pandemic offered by Miami ANIA chapter
    • November 12th – TBD offered by DFW ANIA
