We would love for you all to join us this year as we celebrate Dr. Jennifer Torbett's successful year as president and welcome our incoming president, Dr. Martin Elson. In addition to celebrating all our presidents, past, present, and future, we will be handing out the annual Awards of the Association.

Joining us will be Professor Albert Shimkus of the Naval War College in Newport. Professor Shimkus was selected to join the National Security Affairs (NSA) resident civilian faculty in 2006. He practiced as a CRNA for over 25 years with numerous tours in support of deployed forces, teaches electives focused on Chemical and Biological Warfare and Current Southeast Asia Issues. His areas of academic interest are the application of America’s soft power as an element of the national security strategy and strategic health policy. Professor Shimkus frequently lectures on international cooperative efforts in the delivery of humanitarian assistance and disaster relief and ethical issues associated with the delivery of health care in operational military environments.
