PNAH Goes “On Air” for Nurses Week

PNAH Goes “On Air” for Nurses Week

By: Divina “Debs” Telan- Robillard, PNAH Community Outreach Co-Chair

KNDI’s Amelia Casamina Cabatu, a well-known local radio personality invited PNAH’s Executive Board to talk nursing last Sunday, May 7, 2023, the start of Nurses Week. Because the booth could accommodate only four at a time, PNAH Prexy Cielito Matias-Schwartz anchored the first half of the hour along with VP Lou Vergara Marcelo, Founding President and Board Member Tina Salvador. Executive Director Dr. Nancy Walch, and members Ramon Sumibcay, Violet Arnobit, and Divina Robillard were interviewed in the second half. Fil-Am Courier’s Editor Mary Llanos Cordero assisted Ms. Cabatu in engaging the nurse guests.

The session dealt with a number of topics including personal starts in the nursing profession; PNAH involvement in community life; pieces of advice related to developing healthy habits; how nurses continue to make a difference in lives.  Dr. Walch invited listeners to support the upcoming PNAH Nursing Excellence Awards gala to be held on Saturday, May 20, 2023, at the Hilton Hawaiian Hotel.

Ramon ended the session with a svelte acapella, with the group joining in to segue into the next program.
