Health fairs, community education series hosted at local senior centers, donations to homeless shelters, and other events have become their hallmark. Members are all registered nurses from Long Beach and surrounding areas. The group recently sponsored the establishment of a Village of Mentors designed to support African-American nursing students and registered nurses in leadership positions. The inaugural meeting was held at California State University, Dominguez Hills, California.
