Chapter Background

Get to Know Your Chapter Leadership Team!

The Dallas-Fort Worth PCNA Chapter was started with a grassroots effort in 2012 under the leadership of Linda Martin.

We believe that area nurses can work together to sustain the mission of serving our community through prevention and education. Members represent a variety of settings including acute care registered nurses, nurse practitioners, cardiac rehabilitation nurses, cardiology and prevention nurses, heart failure nurses, and dietitians.

Our goal is to provide educational events for those who are involved in managing cardiovascular disease risk and committed to the prevention of disease. In addition, we are engaged in a variety of community activities that promote cardiovascular health.
