Letter from the President Peggy Kish RN,
Clinical Services Director for Zandex Health Care


The 27th Annual ODONA Convention was held March 20-22, 2016 at the Hilton-Polaris in Columbus.  We had a tremendous line-up of speakers, our vendors were superb, and our sponsors took very good care of us.  We earned the 8 CEUs, plus the three more in Infection Prevention, with a total of 11 CEU’s over the two days of the convention.  We had 38 vendors, who support our industry, and 10 sponsors who provided most of our meals and other expenses.  Overall, the convention was awesome!

The Hilton-Polaris was a very good venue – their service was impeccable, the food was good, and it is a beautiful facility. 

We have tentatively scheduled the 28th Annual Convention for March 26-28, 2017.  We will be looking for other venues, including the Embassy Suites in Dublin, Ohio, and perhaps the Hilton at Easton.  If you have a preference or know of a venue you think could accommodate us, please send us an e-mail at with your recommendation.  As soon as we have a confirmed venue, we will let you know the exact dates for next year’s convention.

Thank you to all of this year’s attendees.  You were attentive, interested and involved in the convention.  In a word, you were WONDERFUL!

Please send us your feedback about anything at the convention that you’d like to address – positive or negative – and we’ll do our best to incorporate your feedback into next year’s plans.

Thank you all for a successful convention!


Peggy Kish,RN
