MANA Virtual Meeting
October 3, 2020


As you know, many meetings have been postponed or have gone virtual. Given the circumstances presented by COVID-19, the MANA Board of Directors made the decision to cancel the in-person Fall Meeting at the Atlantic Sands Hotel & Conference Center in Rehoboth, DE. The MANA Education Committee has reimagined the event in a virtual environment. The MANA Virtual Meeting provides a rich learning environment for current and aspiring CRNAs, with information on cutting-edge practices and strategies to develop their skills in Airway and COVID-19.
