INF Annual Report
Celebration of Nursing – Year in Review
We’re excited to share the release of our 2021 Annual Report!
We welcome you to celebrate with us another successful year. We truly appreciate our donors and sponsors who helped us move our mission forward.
Alma J Labunski Tribute
On July 2, 2022, the Illinois Nurses Foundation lost a dear friend, colleague, and founding board member, Dr. Alma Joel Labunski PhD, MS, RN. We have established an Alma J Labunski Tribute campaign to honor her work. Alma spent a lifetime devoted to nursing, nursing education, and service to others. For twenty-three years she served in leadership roles on the Foundation board, served on various committees, and as the editor and then editor emeritus for The Nursing Voice. We were honored to have served with her and were humbled by her support. The board of directors wishes to pay tribute to her and her effort on behalf of nursing. We are asking for donations of $1.00 for each year of her 23 years of service with the foundation. Let’s all commemorate her service with a $23 donation today!
2022 Holiday Gala & Fundraiser
Registration has opened for our annual Holiday Gala & Fundraiser. We are excited to be back in person for this event at the DoubleTree by Hilton in Lisle on December 3, 2022, 6p-9:30p. A fun evening awaits you at the 2022 Holiday Gala! Enjoy a three-course dinner, cash bar, raffles, online auction, entertainment, the Nurse of the Year presentation, and more!
A Small Group of Nurses Can Accomplish Great Things
The INF provided grants that funded successful Public Health Nurse Academic-Practice Partnerships. Students from BSN, RN-BSN and MSN programs implemented projects serving local health department employees, community providers, parents, caregivers, and high-school students. Topics included employee wellness, sexually transmitted infection prevention, immunization adherence, and asthma.
