Message from the CEO

Author(s): Gay Johnson, Chief Executive Officer, NPWH

Welcome to the dog days of summer! August is the time of year when we should try to take a little break to decompress from our jobs; rejuvenate our minds, bodies, and spirits; and enjoy some family time before revving up for school to start and jobs to kick into high gear for the fall and winter seasons. We should take a lesson from those European countries that virtually shut down for the month of August. But the question I always ask myself is, “How do they do that?!”

By the time you’re reading this message, our inaugural Women’s Sexual Health Course for NPs will have been completed. I am happy to report to you that the course was a huge success! With the encouragement of more than 150 satisfied attendees, we have already started planning for another Women’s Sexual Health Course for NPs in 2015!

In this issue of the journal, we present the program guide for the 17th Annual NPWH Premier Women’s Healthcare Conference, which will be held in Savannah, Georgia, on October 15-18, 2014. We continue to strive to bring you, as providers of women’s healthcare, the most up-to-date, clinically relevant information possible. As you will see in the program guide, this conference promises to deliver all things women’s health.

If you haven’t already registered for the conference, please take a look at our offerings and make plans now to attend. You will be sure to gain the in-depth knowledge and specialized skills needed to provide high-quality healthcare to women of all ages. In addition, the conference provides you with a wonderful opportunity to network with your colleagues; where better to meet with colleagues than in beautiful Savannah?! While you’re there, take a carriage ride through the lovely neighborhoods, participate in a ghost tour, and soak up all  the hospitality that the South is known for.

We hope to see you at our conference in October. But for now, go grab that cool drink, relax in your chair, and enjoy this issue of Women’s Healthcare: A Clinical Journal for NPs.

– Gay Johnson

Chief Executive Officer, NPWH
