Thank You Nurses!! National Nurses Month 2022

The American Nurses Association recognizes the month of May as National Nurses Month, a time to reflect on and honor the memory of nurses we have lost this past.

Nurses make a difference as trusted advocates who ensure individuals, families, and populations receive quality patient care and services.

May is also the month of remembering AmpliVox's beloved Nancy Szluk Roth and celebrating her legacy.

Nancy grew up in Lincoln Park, MI and attended the University of Michigan, graduating in 1964 with a degree in nursing.

She was initially accepted as a aeronautical engineering student and after 3 weeks of classes the dean of engineering showed up and told her that women were not allowed in the engineering program (ca. 1960).

Her caring soul guided her to pursue the field of nursing instead, graduating with honors and serving in the ICU at Ford Hospital in Detroit. She later moved to the Chicagoland area and was a nurse at Evanston Hospital when she met Donald (Don) Richard Roth, whom she married on July 2, 1966.

Nancy later decided to become a flight attendant and was hired by United Airlines in LA as a flight attendant nurse.

Back then, all overseas commercial flights required a flight attendant nurse to be onboard.

She became a dedicated flight attendant at United Airlines, flying for decades, bringing enthusiasm and a quick wit to passengers around the globe.

Nancy traveled the world many times over and as a patriotic and proud American, she especially loved the U.S. troop transports.

As a nurse and one-time aspiring aeronautical engineer, Nancy knew the value of constantly-updated advances in technology.

And today, AmpliVox honors nurses and all others who need the latest innovations in A/V technology and services.

Check out the new AmpliVox Lexington and Concord lecterns, and also our sophisticated custom logo capabilities, including such techniques as etching and vinyl logos to have your lectern proudly display your brand.

Available in Floor, ADA and Multi-Media models, all offer an over-sized reading surface, heavy duty industrial casters for easy mobility and the 25" and 32" floor models offer a spacious storage shelf.

Celebrate Women's History Month - Contributions To Culture and Society

During the mid-19th century, women in multiple countries began organizing campaigns to fight for their rights to vote and run for office. They became known as suffragettes, a member of an activist women's organisation who, under the banner "Votes for Women", fought for the right to vote in public elections.

In 1904 Millicent Fawcett and Carrie Chapman Catt along with other leading women's rights activists formed the international women's suffrage alliance followed by Clara Zetkin organizing international women's day on March 19th in the year 1911.

Millicent Fawcett

Carrie Chapman Catt

Clara Zetkin
This annual celebration was about encouraging peace and women's rights. Its efforts were reintroduced during the 1960s with the women's movement where educators in santa rosa california began celebrating women's history week.

The week was created to increase understanding of women's contributions to society.

This group of educators wanted to attract attention to the fact that women's history wasn't really included in any school curriculum and these organizers used parades, essay contests and other school activities to help create more awareness for the celebration.

Over the next few years other cities all around the country joined santa rosa in celebrating women's history week.

In 1980 president Jimmy Carter announced the week of march 8th national women's history week and he encouraged everyone in the united states to participate, with President Carter stating "too often the women were unsung and sometimes their contributions went unnoticed".

Jimmy Carter Signing Extension of Equal Rights Amendment (ERA) Ratification 10-28-1978

By the year 1986 14 states declared March as women's history month. Every single year the National Women's History Alliance selects a theme for women's history month that continues the discussion of women and their contributions through activities such as museum exhibits movies and by promoting the study of accomplishments by women all year long.

Since the first women's history week in 1978 other countries have joined the United States including Canada and Australia. Every president since Carter has issued a proclamation declaring March women's history month with a statement about its importance as a celebration.
