Dear Members of the WSGNA Board,
Thank you for having selected me as a scholarship recipient to attend the WSGNA Fall conference in La Crosse, WI.
This was my very first SGNA conference, and I was very impressed. The speakers were all quite knowledgeable, the topics very interesting, and helped me to gain a better insight in manometery, which we do not perform at our facility.
I enjoyed visiting with the vendors and networking with other GI nurses, discussing common issues or processes. I can then, in turn, share what I have learned with my co-workers.
The venue was very nice, the food and snacks were very tasty, and I really enjoyed the anticipation of drawing for prizes (thank you for the flowers) and the silent auction. And coming to the beautiful city of La Crosse allowed me to enjoy the sights, and spend quality time with my son, who is a senior at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse.
It was a very enjoyable weekend, and I appreciate your assistance!
