Bay Area Association of Pediatric Hematology/Oncology Nurses
The Association of Pediatric Hematology/Oncology Nurse, APHON, is a national professional organization for pediatric hematology/oncology nurses. Its members are dedicated to promoting optimal nursing care for children and adolescents with cancer and their families. APHON hosts annual national conferences for educational and networking opportunities for pediatric hematology/oncology nurses around the country.
BAPHON is the local chapter of APHON serving pediatric hematology and oncology nurses from the Northern California area. We plan quarterly educational events and an annual symposium, as well as networking opportunities for our chapter members and other interested nurses. Our board members meet monthly to plan our activities, and we are always seeking any volunteers who are interested in serving on our board. We welcome you to browse our site and hope that you will find the resources helpful. This site will be updated as changes occur, so be sure to come and visit often!
