As many of you know, we lost a very special member of our CRNA community recently. Lorrie Bennett was a dedicated CRNA, hard-working NMANA board member and an all-around beautiful human being. In her memory, we have started a scholarship fund to support future NM CRNAs with their education costs. Please click on the link below to donate.
