AORN Surgical Conference & Expo
The Johnson & Johnson Medical Device Companies were proud to be the solo Platinum Sponsor for the recent Association of periOperative Registered Nurses (AORN)’s 63rd Surgical Conference & Expo held earlier this month in Anaheim, Calif. Along with the sponsorship which brought together a unified presence from several Johnson & Johnson companies including ASP, DePuy Synthes and ETHICON, Sandra Humbles, VP, Global Education Solutions, Johnson & Johnson Medical Devices, kicked off the 2016 meeting by providing the welcoming address.
“Johnson & Johnson and nurses have a long history. And the 'why' behind our shared passion, dedication and motivation has never been clearer,” Humbles stated.
Humbles’ captivated her audience by sharing a story about Operation Smile, a nonprofit that provides safe surgeries to children around the world, and her experience with seeing how much one of their nurses impacted a patient’s life. She then shared with attendees that nurses are why Johnson & Johnson does what they do every day.
“That is why Johnson & Johnson launched the Campaign for Nursing’s Future 14 years ago in 2002,” Humbles said.
The Johnson & Johnson Medical Device Companies hosted other AORN convention activites, including a multimedia exhibit booth featuring credentialed professional education and a spotlight on the Operation Smile organization and company sustainability efforts among other offerings. In addition, a new “Day in the Life” video from the Campaign featuring Jennifer a Perioperative Nurse was unveiled (see below.)
