July 16-18, 2018
Embassy Suites, Lexington, KY
(Pre-Conference on Monday, July 16)
I have attached the registration form for the Annual 2018 Conference along with a tentative Program Agenda. The Program agenda will be updated as the speaker outlines her presentations for specific times. For our Pre-conference on Monday, July 16th – we will hear presentations from KDE regarding new regulations and updates for the 2018-19 school year. We will also have a speaker from Cincinnati Children’s Hospital presenting on Diabetes in the school setting.
On Tuesday and Wednesday – Barb Bancroft will be presenting. She will be covering topics such as Mental Health Issues ( ADHD, OCD, Bipolar, and Anxiety), Food Allergies, GI diseases and disorders ( Crohn’s, IBS, GERD), sport’s injuries, skin disorders, asthma, diabetes and numerous other topics that impact school nurses. She will also be discussing the medications associated with these.
For those of you who heard Barb Bancroft speak to our group several years ago, you know that she is an excellent speaker! Barb, who is an NP, has provided over 2500 continuing education seminars across the US and Canada. She has presented to The American Academy of Nurse Practitioners, Medical-Surgical Nurses Association, the Emergency Nurses Association, the Association of Practitioners for Infection Control, and our own KY School Nurses Association, just to name a few. She brings a great deal of experience and knowledge to her seminars. I think you will truly enjoy her presentations.
