DNA 20--West Metro Area.

DNA 20 started its 2007-2008 year with its pre-convention delegate meeting in September. Thirteen of the fourteen elected delegates attended the convention in Pueblo. Congratulations to Kathy Crisler, DNA 20 Nurse of the Year for 2006-2007, who was recognized at the convention's Awards Dinner. Other awards given out at the banquet went to Linda Krebs for her Contributions to CNA at the State Level and to Kiska May for her Sustained Contributions to CNA. DNA 20 also was the proud recipient of the DNA of the Year Award. DNA 20 donated a basket for the Colorado Nurses Foundation Silent Auction, which raises monies for nursing scholarships, that was held in conjunction with the convention.

At the October DNA 20 meeting, Susan Moyer, DNA 20 member, gave a presentation on La Buena VIDA, a grant funded program that provided diabetic education and screening to the Latino/a population of Jefferson County. In November, staff from the Veterans Affairs Denver Medical Center provided a presentation on the VA Compassion Corps Program. To celebrate the holidays, and to raise funds for the DNA 20 Scholarship, members, along with their families and friends, will attend the musical revue "From Rags to Riches" at Heritage Square Musical Hall in Golden in December.

Kudos to DNA 20 members Corinne Koehler who received the 2007 Doris J. Biester Award for Excellence in Leadership from Alpha Kappa Chapter-at-Large of Sigma Theta Tau International Honor Society and to Janet Ballantyne who received her certificate in Travel Health from the International Society of Travel Medicine.
