From the desk of Ada Leung, RN, MPH
CANA President

Dear distinguished members and friends,

On behalf of Chinese American Nurses Association (CANA) Board of
Directors, I would like to welcome you to the first issue of CANA

CANA was established in 1997 by a group of Chinese American nurses in
New York and obtained 501 (c)(3) status as a tax exempt non-profit
organization in 2010. Through the organization, members develop
professional and personal networks, conduct healthcare activities and
carry on our goals, such as promoting quality health care services to
the community.

2016 is an exciting year for CANA! One of the milestones is that Dr.
Mei R. Fu has agreed to take the lead on the Scholarship Committee and
the Chief Editor to launch the CANA Global CONNECT, the official news
magazine of the Chinese American Nurses Association (CANA).

CANA Global CONNECT is a platform to reach out to nurses and other
health care professionals globally. In sharing our knowledge and
experiences, we can promote our health care professional standard and
ultimately improve our nursing health care services for our community
– the mission of CANA.

We are confident that under the leadership of Dr. Mei R. Fu, the CANA
scholarship committee and CANA Global CONNECT will serve the community
to a level we cannot imagine!

Last, but not least, I would like to express our appreciation to Dr.
Mei R. Fu and her team for their dedication in making this happen. We
believe this newsletter can connect you to our nursing family and hope
you will enjoy it.
