Natalie Farrar, the RVNA’s chief business development and strategy officer, doesn’t need a monthly book club to keep herself reading regularly. In 2017, Farrar was invited by the American Journal of Nursing (AJN) to judge submissions in the “Community, Public Health and Home Health” category for its Book of the Year Award program Farrar read and reviewed the 17 submissions in her category.

“It was a monumental job,” said Farrar of the effort, “and it required significant time and concentration. But in doing so, I refreshed my knowledge and encountered new ideas, and there’s simply no way to read 17 books without learning a lot. I’m looking forward to synthesizing my takeaways and sharing them with the team at RVNA.”
