The ABOHN Ann M. Lachat Excellence in Occupational Health Nursing Award was originally established in 1997 to honor ABOHN’s first chair, Marguerite Ahern Graff. The ABOHN Board of Directors changed the name of this award in 2015, to honor Ann M. Lachat, the former CEO of ABOHN, for her 23 years of service. This special award is given to the individual who achieved the highest score on the previous year's COHN examination.
This 2019 recipient of the Ann M. Lachat Excellence in Occupational Health Nursing Award is:
Pamela Edstrom, RN, COHN
Congratulations Pamela, you are an inspiration to our community!
