We’re all excited here at Action Products and we know you are, too, with the 2018 AORN Global Surgical Conference & Expo less than a week away. The Expo will be our chance to connect with thousands nurses and reps of affiliate companies, not to mention hearing those dynamite keynote speakers.                                                                           

With the theme this year being Embrace Action: Mind, Body, and Spirit, our angel pin giveaways are a fitting way for us show our appreciation for nurses by giving away our special angel pins – don’t forget to stop by Booth #2123 to get yours! We invite you all to ask for a sample of our stress-relieving product and have yourself “a good self-therapeutic squeeze”! (Of course, the perfect equivalents to stress balls are available right in your OR, in the form of our Akton® viscoelastic polymer gel positioners.) 

The two charities we are highlighting at the Expo have each become important at Action Products year round. First, (for the 5th year now), our Action Products booth will feature the hugely successful Scan For a Cause at our booth. The way it works is this: by simply scanning your conference badge, you will be making a donation to the AORN Foundation or Mercy Ships.  The foundation’s worthy projects include:

  • granting academic scholarships for students and for nurses pursuing advanced degrees
  • supporting educational programming and patient safety initiatives

The second charity is Mercy Ships hospital ships provide free, lifesaving surgeries for people where medical care is nearly non-existent. The Association of periOperative Registered Nurses partners with Mercy Ships to provide surgical support and healthcare in African nations.  AORN members are encouraged to volunteer on the Africa Mercy, the world’s largest non-governmental hospital ship; cash donations can be made at the Expo.

At Action Products, we’re excited, ready to meet old friends and new ones, ready to Embrace Action - and ready to do our part for the AORN Foundation and for Mercy Ships!
