    Retired Nurses event

    Be Informed ….. Stay Engaged!

    The Connecticut Nurses' Association is pleased to support the Retired Nurses' Group. 

    We meet twice a year in May and October to discuss the happenings around the state and how to stay involved as a retired nurse!

    We are pleased to announce Anne Hulick  as our
    May 13, 2019 guest speaker.

    Anne directs Clean Water's Connecticut team and coordinates the Coalition for a Safe and Healthy Connecticut to pass health protective policies in Connecticut aimed at removing toxic chemicals from consumer and children's products and works to raise awareness across the state on the health impacts of exposure to toxic chemicals.

    Anne was a staff nurse in critical care and cardiothoracic surgical intensive care. She served as Director of Acute Care Services at Waterbury Hospital Health Center, and as the Nursing Director of the medical cardiology service at Hartford Hospital.

    Anne's passion to combine nursing, health policy and environmental law led her to pursue a law degree from Western New England College School of Law and she was admitted to the CT Bar in October 2007. Prior to joining Clean Water Action, Anne worked as an environmental analyst in the Air Bureau at Connecticut Department of Environmental Protection and was the Environmental Health Coordinator at the CT Nurses' Association. She has written and lectured extensively on environmental health topics, particularly on the health impacts associated with exposure to chemicals.
