Promoting the Health of Women and Newborns

Conference Registration is Now Open!

**COVID-29 Update: We understand that circumstances around COVID-19 are constantly changing. Oregon AWHONN will regularly monitor the situation and as our Conference date approaches, make a determination whether or not we will be able to meet as planned. The safety of our members, our presenters and our communities will be our highest priority. Due to these extenuating circumstances, we are updating our cancellation policy as follows: in the event that Oregon AWHONN or Eagle Crest Resort deems it necessary to cancel the event due to National or State health recommendations, we will provide a full refund to all attendees up to the date on which we cancel the event and waive the $25 cancellation fee. Should a registered participant decide to cancel her/his registration prior to an official announcement of cancellation, the $25 cancellation fee will still apply.**

2020 Oregon AWHONN Fall Conference Registration is now open!!

Your Conference Committee is hard at work getting all the details in place. But we know our conference hotel usually fills up fast. So registration for the Conference is opening soon. You can also start booking your hotel room now before they disappear.

Thank You, Oregon AWHONN Fall Conference Attendees!

Thank you for attending the 2019 Oregon AWHONN Fall Conference! We hope you had a great time and took away a ton of information you'll take back to your colleagues. Your Conference Committee thanks you for your continued dedication to the health and well-being of the women, babies, and families you serve.
It's because of caring, dedicated nurses like you that we were able to help our local charity, Her Place.

Donations to Her Place

Again, through the generous contributions from all of you, we raised a whopping $1,902 in raffle ticket sales. Oregon AWHONN matched your contribution for a total donation of $3,804. And thanks to Northwest PRN, who made a donation as well, Her Place was gifted with a total of $4,004!!

But wait... There's more! Again, because of the generosity of all of you, Her Place received 4,142 diapers from our diaper drive!
