Hello, and WELCOME to the website of the MOAA Uniformed Services Nurse Advocates Virtual Chapter. If you are concerned about Military Healthcare issues which affect Uniformed Service Members (currently serving and Reserve/Guard components, Retirees, Veterans and their families), you’ve landed at the right site. If you’re a current or past member of a Uniformed Services Nurse Corps, you’re on a great path. We also require membership in the Military Officers Association of America, but that can be done as part of the application process at no cost. We also charge no dues! I invite you to join in this exciting, pioneering initiative. Our members have had interesting and diverse careers, with extraordinary expertise in many areas of nursing. While I no longer put my hands on patients, I feel that my caring for them continues through my advocacy for healthcare-related legislation, and other important MOAA goals.
With the upcoming holiday and the current pandemic, I am focusing on Thanks*For*Giving. Healthcare team workers have been on the frontline for months now, battling the COVID-19, that remains spreading rapidly throughout our nation. I know that we are in awe of their dedication, skill, compassion, leadership, adaptability to everchanging circumstances, resilience, and sacrifices. They care for patients/their loved ones, colleagues, their communities and often keep a distance from their own families to protect them from any potential of becoming infected. Our currently serving personnel know that they must be prepared to be assigned elsewhere to meet the needs of patients during this all hands on deck period of time.
I am so proud of what MOAA does to continually develop ways to help our active duty and veteran families and caregivers during this time of healthcare and financial challenges. The MOAA Foundation, through donations, helps to combat the financial effects of the coronavirus pandemic through the “COVID-19 Relief Fund”. Grants are available up to $500 and must be processed through chapters.
Two things we can all do. 1) Check out moaa.org/DonateNow, and 2) If you identify some one or family in your community who is in a financially fragile situation, please contact MUSNAVC@gmail.com for help with grant applications.
Blessings for you and yours. Stay safe, well, and with our great team!!
