This week :  Vaccine Coordination
With Dr. Kristen Hosey, WVC

Dr. Kristen Hosey has been working as the vaccine coordinator for Chelan Douglas Health District since late January 2021. She will discuss the vaccine coordinator role and how it has evolved over the last 6 months as the COVID-19 vaccine supply and demand has changed this year.

She is full-time faculty in the nursing program at Wenatchee Valley College (WVC), and has a Clinical Associate Professor appointment at the University of Washington (Seattle) in the School of Nursing as well as the Department of Global Health. She is a certified nursing educator with over a decade of teaching experience at the associate, bachelors, graduate and post-doctoral levels in nursing.

As faculty at WVC, Dr. Hosey is responsible for teaching in the Registered Nurse to Bachelor of Science in Nursing (RN to BSN) program as well as in the simulation labs. Since the start of COVID-19 in March 2020 she also has been the Incident Commander and Public Health Officer for WVC.

Dr. Hosey  is a board-certified advanced public health nurse, and has demonstrated leadership in global health and health policy through her work with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as well as the World Health Organization.  She is a consultant at the Chelan Douglas Health District, as well as regionally in North Central Washington, in infectious disease and public health.  She has lived in sub-Saharan Africa for over 3 years, and has collaborated on healthcare projects, policy, and nursing education in over 18 countries for the last decade. 

While a student and then Clinical Assistant Professor at the University of Washington (UW), she also partnered locally with Coastal Salish sovereign nations in program development activities that targeted health disparities.  Dr. Hosey still consults with the UW on global and community health work, and is an alumni and working group member of the Afya Bora Consortium in Global Health Leadership. In 2018 she received the Nurse Influencer Award, the UW Centennial Award for 100 UW alumni and faculty nurse influencers.

 The hybrid meeting was opened and led by new president Alice Meyer, the seventh woman to hold this position.   Alice introduced many members of her family and then presented her vision for the coming Rotary year. 

A top priority for Rotary is growing and diversifying our membership to make sure we reflect the community we serve.  Mother Teresa said, “The problem with the world is that we draw the circle of our family too small.”   SO Let’s spin the wheel of fortune and expand our circle.  

The vision of President Elect Nominee, Michelle Shermer, President Elect, Jill Leonard and me is to increase the diameter of our circle to reflect the community we serve.   We can do this with the following leadership: 

Peace Team,  led by  Michelle Shermer,   

Public Image Team, led by Jill Leonard,  

Membership Team, led by Marcia Henkle,

Community Outreach Team, led by Joe St. Jean


Rotary Park Team, led by Phil Rasmussen, Rich Peters and Tom McNair.

The Youth Team, led by Laurie Flarity-White,

The Auction Team, led by Co-Chairs Mike Kintner and Pete VanWell. 

The Program Team, led by Loren Stach

The History Team, led by Marriah Thornock and Marc Heminger, and

The Board of Directors (term ending June 30 of year shown)

Michelle Shermer
Tom Everly
Ricardo Iniguez
Dante Gutierrez-Zamora
Matthew Michelson
Sean Cooper
Jim Brink
Marili Rounds
Tom Ross
Allan Galbraith will continue as the club's Treasurer, Frank Clifton as the club secretary. 

New for 2021-2022, Don Myers has agreed to be our outreach/encourager. Alice also mentioned all those serving on the various teams.


The Circle of life, a video sung by Elton John was played; these lyrics were read by Alice.

From the day we arrive on the planet 

And blinking, step into the sun

There’s more to see than can ever be seen 

More to do than can ever be done

But all are agreed as they join the stamped

You should never take more than you give

In the circle of life, 

It’s the wheel of fortune, 

it’s the leap of faith, 

It’s the band of hope,

Till we find our place, 

On the path unwinding, 

In the circle, the circle of life


An updated classification talk by Carmen Bossenbrock, had to be rescheduled due to technical problems.

Polio News, etc.   Pete Van Well (district Polio chair) announces:  

Exciting news! The Rotary Foundation of Canada has gifted $1 Million to the fight against polio. It is the first such donation of its kind.  It should help Rotary reach its goal of $50 Million by the end of this Rotary year.
