Welcome to the California Section Leadership Team page! Beth and I are so thrilled to have you on our team, as we all work towards the shared goal of advancing AWHONN’s Mission to Empower and support nurses caring for women, newborns, and their families through research, education, and advocacy. We are here to support you, so please do not hesitate to reach out. We are both so excited about our new website! We hope you’ll take some time to explore it, and please let us know what you think!
