The Houston chapter is upholding NAHN's commitment to students by partnering with Jones Futures academy. Jones is unique in that it gives high school students an opportunity to graduate with an associates degree in nursing. The curriculum is at college level and they have a state of the art  skills lab. Our chapter's role is to mentor these students by providing academic, career and skills guidance. Fostering a mentor/men tee relationship is important for the student and can help them transition from student nurse to nurse. 

We are proud to have been selected by national to participate in the 2015-2016 Muevete campaign. Many of our members have experienced interest in this particular project and we are currently in "teach the teacher" phase. We are excited at the opportunity to teach young children the importance of proper nutrition and exercise so they may adopt  these healthy behaviors for the rest of their lives. 

Our chapter is also in the infancy stage of establishing a Hispanic cancer network. Cherry Sloan, ex president of PNAMH, is assisting us. The development of the project as she was instrumental in the success of the Philippine cancer network. This network will assist those families struggling with a diagnosis of cancer via funds, education, nutrition, emotional support, etc.
