The Pennsylvania Association of Nurse Anesthetists promotes Nurse Anesthesia practice by striving to increase public awareness regarding the capability of these advance practice nurses to act as providers of quality health care. It is the purpose of this Association to promote, through continuing education, the science and art of anesthesiology as provided by CRNAs in all practice settings.
In collaboration with the American Association of Nurse Anesthetists, PANA offers its members the resources necessary to advance patient safety and practice excellence.
We regret to inform the PANA membership that Diana Davidson, CRNA, passed away on Tuesday, December 20th in Camp Hill, PA. Diana was a past president of PANA and an advocate for the Nurse Anesthesia profession. She was actively engaged in missionary work, so much so that she was the President Elect of Operation Medical (www.operationmedical.org).
PANA is honoring Diana's legacy with a scholarship, set up through the AANA Foundation. To donate to the Diana Davidson Scholarship Fund, send donations to the AANA Foundation at 222 S. Prospect Ave, Park Ridge, IL 60068. Read more about Diana's contribution to the practice here.
