The Crescent City Chapter of the Preventive Cardiovascular Nursing Association serves the New Orleans, Baton Rouge, Lafayette, Lake Charles, Houma, Slidell, Southern Mississippi, South Alabama and Pensacola, FL areas.
Contact Chloe to learn more about getting involved with the Crescent City Chapter.
The Crescent City Chapter was started in 2012 by Jeanne Redmann, RN to offer cardiovascular healthcare professionals an opportunity to belong to a local and national organization that provides current information and education on cardiovascular disease.
In keeping with the mission of PCNA, to promote nurses as leaders in the prevention of cardiovascular disease, the Crescent City Chapter holds quarterly meetings including Spring and Fall continuing education programs. The Crescent City Chapter promotes primary and secondary prevention of cardiovascular disease by providing community education and blood pressure screenings. Upcoming events are posted on the chapter web site and the Crescent City Chapter Facebook page.
Join the Crescent City Chapter at the 9th Annual Back to Nature Heart Walk sponsored by the Friends of Joe W. Brown Memorial Park & New Orleans East Hospital!
