American Academy of Nurse Practitioners (AANP) Conference

Last week ENC was in Florida for the AANP conference!  Besides the rain and storms, it was a great conference. The group was very happy we were spreading our education messages and information. One of our Health Professional Advisory Panel members, Dixie Harms DNP, ARNP, FNP-C, BC-ADM, FAANP, presented “The Truth Behind  Dietary Cholesterol and Lipids” during a product showcase.

ENC sponsored the grand opening breakfast reception and provided some of our health professional and client materials. We were able to educate over 450 Nurse Practitioners and students over the course of three days!

It was a noticeable change that NPs were aware of the cholesterol research and eager to know what was new in eggs. This was a refreshing change from other shows. MyPlate materials were very popular as NPs felt they were perfect for client education.

We had a great time meeting new people and listening to feedback from nurse practitioners! If you attended the AANP national conference, let us know your thoughts!
