Members of Laureate Alpha Lambda on their meeting day at the home of President Mary Mills
Laureate Alpha Lambda Busy from Beginning Day
Members of Laureate Alpha Lambda have been very busy from beginning day Aug.30 to their opening meeting September 6 at the home of President, Mary Mills. Beginning day, all members received tiaras signaling they were “Queens for a day” at the home of Karen Kleman. This was followed by a sumptuous potluck including a “queenly” decorated cake.
At Mills’ home, the sorority was treated to a power point presentation from Marcia Byers, PhD., RN. Dr. Byers currently serves as the Director of Research for UAMS Regional Programs. Dr. Byers’ focus as a research investigator is to improve Arkansan’s health. She participates in projects that are related to health challenges facing our state. In her presentation, she offered the outcomes for the question of whether the quality of care was higher for nurse-led wellness visits as opposed to physician led wellness visits in specific clinics. The conclusions drawn were that nurses enhanced clinical preventive services in these primary care clinics.
Zeta Sigma Meeting…Our September meeting was held at the home of Tammy Landry with Mary Baker as cohost. Chris Matthews, Hart Center Fitness Coordinator spoke to our group about all that the Hart Center offers and the benefits derived from membership. Jill Bailey and Sherry DeClerk are our pledges this year and will no doubt become very valuable members. On September 28 members will be going to Top of the Rock attraction in Ridgedale, MO and then into Branson, MO for shopping. The next meeting is October 12 at the home of Gesina LaDage.
