Conversations with the President

Coffee with Claire webinars

CNA heard from our members that among all the emerging science and social media opinions circulating, there is a need for current, reliable evidence-based information on COVID-19. In response, CNA president Claire Betker hosted a series of conversations with experts and question-and-answer sessions with nurses across Canada. The final webinar was held on June 4, 2020.
