  • Amy Roark NASN State Director in DC

    Our sweet Amy Roark, NASN State Director for GA, was representing our School Nurses in D.C. this week. She had a face to face opportunity with one of our congressman to talk about GA School Nurses and NASN's legislative priorities. She did not get a chance to meet with Senator Warnock, however had a great talk with his Health Policy staffer on school mental health and how school nurses play a critical role in schools as a mental health resource. 

    Thank you Amy for being the VOICE  for GA SCHOOL NURSES!
