Special Interest Group (SIG) Leaders

We are in need of a leader for the Ethics and Ambulatory Care SIGs. Please contact Chelsea Kroll at

The SIGs meet quarterly and during the annual conference to provide a place to explore pertinent issues of concern in health care, to share expertise in specific subject area and to network with those colleagues in similar settings providing similar services. Any AOSW member is invited to attend these meetings and SIG leaders will also set up goals and plans for activities during the year.
