UNA/ANA Member Alex Wubbels Receives National Honor

 

UNA/ANA member Alex Wubbels, BSN, RN, was one of ten registered nurses in the nation who received American Nurses Association (ANA) 2018 Honorary Awards recognizing outstanding nurses whose dedication and achievements have contributed significantly to the nursing profession.  Alex accepted The Staff Nurse Patient Advocacy Award that “recognizes staff nurse advocates— the heroines and heroes on the front lines— for providing direct patient care in all practice settings and who have advocated for their patients.” In her gracious acceptance speech, she thanked UNA for ongoing support in her public efforts to raise awareness of and help prevent nurse abuse.

 

Medicaid Expansion on the November 2018 Ballot 

 

On Tuesday, May 29, 2018, the Utah Lieutenant Governor's office officially declared that the Utah Decides Healthcare Medicaid expansion initiative will be on the ballot in November.   Signature requirements for the initiative to be included on the ballot were surpassed with more than 147,000 total verified signatures and sufficient validated signatures in 26 out of 29 senate districts.

 

UNA has advocated for the full expansion of Medicaid in Utah and supported the ongoing leadership of Utah Decides Healthcare and the Utah Health Policy Project over the last five years to achieve this significant milestone.  Hearty congratulations to our esteemed colleagues for giving all Utahns the opportunity to weigh in on this crucial healthcare issue. 

 

Make sure your voice is heard – vote in November to help improve healthcare access for our friends, neighbors and patients.
