What's New?

We have a volunteer opportunity with Project CURE on Saturday, January 30. They are going to take in a large number of surgical packs from Cardinal Health. The task is to break down these packs and sort the contents. A task for which DAORN seems well suited. We will sort 1-3 PM, followed by light food and adult beverages. If interested, please send an email to Jim Stobinski (, as he is going to be our team leader for this event.
