The A.C.N.M. Foundation Varney Leadership Award is given to two basic midwifery student members of ACNM to support their participation in a unique mentored student leadership experience.
Award recipients attend leadership conferences and perform leadership activities. Mentorship is led by Maria Valentin-Welch, CNM, DNP, MPH, CDP, FACNM, along with past Varney Award winners.
The award covers the cost of any conference registrations plus hotel/housing accommodation. This student experience is made possible through the generous financial support of Helen Varney Burst, MSN, CNM, DHL (Hon.), FACNM.
