President's Welcome



Hello, Sigma Theta Tau, International Members,

On behalf of the Board of Directors and Advisory Council, I welcome to the Upsilon Alpha website once again.  It was, of course, Gail Wainwright, our previous president, who established this site for us, and first alerted us to this website opportunity. We look forward to having this Upsilon Alpha website as a forum for  communicating our Sigma Theta Tau events, as well as news about members and chapter events.

Deb Halliday and I recently attended a STTI webinar, sponsored by headquarters, about website maintenance, and sure are planning to keep this up as a place to share announcements and chapter documents. Although we’ve just begun to learn about some of the features of Upsilon Alpha’s website, we believe it will be an important place for us to connect.  We know that the most important part of making this work is if you also begin to explore what can be done here.  We’ll be thrilled if you’d post a picture of yourself and an updated profile…it’s not very difficult to do.

It’s actually possible for you to send out an email to any or all of chapter members. That, in itself, is exciting for those on the Board and Advisory Councils to be able to do!  We really want our chapter to be informed and engaged.  And, we believe you want that for your membership, too!

Dr. Lori Hoffman

2014-2016, Upsilon Alpha President



Under the direction of Dr. Herman Sagastume, MAMA project Honduras field director, we used a mobile medical brigade approach.  The headquarters is in San Francisco de Yojoa, where the MAMA project field office, nutrition program, and housing are located.  From this headquarters, we traveled to remote jungle villages to provide the brigade:  screen for nutritional deficits, BP screen, Hemoglobin screen, deworming, Vit. A, glasses, nutrient pack distribution, etc.  Additionally, the brigade included a Honduran Doctor and Dentist who provided dental and medical care.  To learn more about this project, click the following link: http://www.mamaproject.org/honduras.html
