Welcome to the 34th Annual AAHN Nursing & Health Care History Conference, co-sponsored by the Wegmans School of Nursing. This year we are working on an exciting program, offering you a wealth of opportunities for professional development and personal enjoyment. Join us in Fairport, New York for inspiring speakers, informative workshops and opportunities for networking and dialogue.  Take time to connect with old friends and make new ones during the social activities. And finally, enjoy the sights and sounds of Fairport in September!

Contact hour credit for this offering is pending through Rochester Regional Health Department of Clinical Education & Nursing Research.  Rochester Regional Health Department of Clinical Education & Nursing Research is an approved provider of continuing nursing education by ANA Massachusetts, an accredited approver by the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Commission on Accreditation.

AAHN Auctions

Every year, the AAHN hosts the silent and live auctions, which take place on the second day of the conference. This is a fun and interactive way to help support the AAHN Research Grants Program. The AAHN Grants Program needs your financial support in order to continue to offer these valuable grants. Donations of auction items are currently being accepted. You may have the perfect item(s) to auction off, so send them in! All items should be received by August 28, 2017 to ensure delivery prior to the auction. Please send your items to:

Stay Social with AAHN!

AAHN is putting a greater effort behind its social media presence to help you stay connected both with the organization and the conference. Be sure to follow AAHN on Facebook and Twitter, and if you discuss the conference on either platform, use this year’s conference hashtag, #AAHN2017. A Facebook event has also been created to help connect attendees sooner and allow for conversations to occur even before you get to Fairport!
