Important update re: in-person events CANO/ACIO events

Given the rapidly evolving novel coronavirus/COVID-19 situation, we ask that all in-person Oncology Nursing Day (OND) events or other in-person CANO/ACIO events be cancelled or changed to virtual events. Our public health leaders have advised that diligent social distancing, including reducing public gatherings, is critically important. We can all play a part in helping to mitigate the impact of the outbreak and to help protect the health of those most vulnerable.

Social distancing does not mean social isolation. We can still connect with and support one another through social media Facebook, Twitter, or LinkedIn and by texting/calling/emailing each other.

We are incredibly grateful for your dedication, compassion, and expertise, now and always.

Sending big (virtual) hugs to all,

Reanne Booker, MN BScN NP
CANO/ACIO President
