Thank you for supporting the 2022 NYSANA PAC Challenge!

The Nurse Anesthesia PAC Fund Committee challenged every CRNA in the state of New York to donate to their PAC, to spread the word to family and friends about the vital role CRNAs play in healthcare in the state of New York, and to ask for their support for the profession. The challenge kicked off during CRNA week 2022 and lasted 7 weeks.

• Over $30,000 was raised in support of PAC during this time! Thank you to all who contributed! •
