Another major Health and Wellness initiative will receive the backing of Consolidated Foods Ltd. as the company strengthens a decision made five years ago to become more involved and support matters relating to health and wellness in St. Lucia.
The 29th Biennial Conference of the Caribbean Nurses Organization (CNO) hosted by the St. Lucia Nurses Association is expected to attract over 300 participants throughout the Caribbean, including the USA and Canada. CFL is a Gold Sponsor of the event through a $10,000 (cash and kind) contribution.
The Conference is expected to focus on current trends in nursing and healthcare.
Nurse Lydia Leonce, President of the St. Lucia Nurses Association welcomed CFL as a Gold sponsor noting “CFL is no stranger to nurses in St Lucia. They have continuously sponsored events hosted by the St Lucia Nurses Association and have become a corporate friend to the SLNA.
When approached, CFL immediately committed to being part of CNO 2014 despite the economic climate and have come in as major partners.”
The theme for CNO 2014 is “Nursing and Midwifery: Integrating knowledge, skills and attitudes in the delivery of safe, quality patient care.” It will provide a forum for nurses from over 33 member courtiers to socialize and share experiences through educational and business sessions, institutional visits and organized tours of the island.
The island’s Health Minister, Alvina Reynolds says the conference theme fitting as government looks to reform the island’s health sector.
