May 11, 2020
During the current Coronavirus pandemic, people all across the country have shown their vast appreciation towards health care workers on the frontlines directly combating COVID-19. Although it’s important to show our appreciation throughout the year, May 2020 is officially designated as Nurse Appreciation Month. In years past, we typically celebrate Nurse Appreciation Week, but the outstanding work and numerous sacrifices that nurses have made throughout the COVID-19 crisis is being fully recognized all throughout the month of May. Some have even deemed 2020 as the “Year of the Nurse!”
At Athens Area Urology, our appreciation and dedication towards celebrating our nurses is no different. We recognize the tireless effort that our staff has implemented throughout the Coronavirus pandemic, whether it is through telemedicine or having several safety procedures in place for our newly reopened in-person appointments.
We would like to honor our wonderful Nurse Practitioners (NPs): Rachel Treadwell, Traci Johns, Kristen G. Lane, Kimberly H. Parker, and Meghan Lee! All of our nurse practitioners at Athens Area Urology are proudly certified by the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners. Additionally, two of our nurses, Kristen G. Lane and Kimberly H. Parker are CUNP certified (Board of Urologic Nurses). Heather Morris, our clinical coordinator at AAU, is also a registered nurse who has been active in the urology field since 2009. Heather’s services include CMGs, injections, catheter changes/removals and much more. She is a crucial part of our team and is loved by all of our patients!
If you would like to learn more individually about all of our nurses, visit our website for more information. Each nurse either works directly with an AAU doctor or works with all of our medical teams in general. You can schedule an appointment via our website or give us a call at 706.612.9401. We continue to offer in-person appointments (following the appropriate safety protocols and guidelines). We will continue to provide appointments via telemedicine for those who prefer a virtual method instead. We look forward to hearing from you soon, and remember, show your appreciation towards your local nurses and health care workers for everything they have done throughout COVID-19!
