Chapter Introduction

Get to Know Your Chapter Leadership Team!

The Erie Chapter was started in September 2019 by Anita Klein and her colleagues. Our plan is to offer cardiovascular healthcare professionals an opportunity to belong to the local chapter of a national organization that provides current information and education on cardiovascular disease. We hope to provide opportunities for continuing education, professional growth, and networking.

In keeping with the mission of PCNA, to promote nurses as leaders in the prevention of cardiovascular disease, the Erie chapter plans to hold quarterly meetings. Our goal is to provide opportunities to our local medical community to earn continuing education by hosting events every spring and fall. We also want to create or participate in local community educational opportunities promoting prevention of cardiovascular disease by providing education and blood pressure screenings.

We are eager to share with our area colleagues the benefits available through PCNA with our Erie and tristate area colleagues. This will be a new experience for our region and we are excited to see it blossom!
