Pauline Louis Magiste President

2019 President – Pauline Louis-Magiste, MSNEd, APRN, RN

Hello and thank you for visiting our website.

In January 2010, post the devastating earthquake that struck our beloved Haiti, I attended my first HANA meeting and was amazed by the tremendous work of the members. The disaster relief efforts they were doing not just here locally, but in Haiti is a clear description of one of the many integral parts of HANA’s mission: to become effectively involved with the issues and services relevant to the health and welfare of the communities in Florida and abroad. As I begin my 2-year tenure as HANA of Florida’s’ president, my primary objective is as: To enhance our community engagement by combining the old with the new. HANA is known in our community for its voluntary efforts in bridging the gap of health disparities by improving health literacy through education, awareness, mentoring, and partnership.
