NAPW honors Diane Drozeck, B.S.N., R.N., as a 2014 Professional Woman of the Year. Ms. Drozeck is recognized with this prestigious distinction for leadership in nursing and as an advocate for the disabled. As the largest, most-recognized organization of women in the country, spanning virtually every industry and profession, the National Association of Professional Women (NAPW) is a powerfully vibrant networking community with over 600,000 members and nearly 300 Local Chapters.
“I have been helping people ever since I was a child, so a career in nursing was simply a natural progression for me,” says Ms. Drozeck.
Retired from an exemplary 18-year career in Med-Surg nursing at Staten Island University Hospital, it was there that Ms. Drozeck gained great respect from surgeons specializing in gastric bypass surgeries - her preferred area of expertise. She is trained in emergency medicine and has been an active volunteer for The Medical Reserve Corps (MRC), which works in partnership with professional associations, universities and hospitals to organize a multidisciplinary group of volunteer health professionals to help in New York’s tri-state emergencies.
Presently, Ms. Drozeck is a well-known advocate for the disabled who works tirelessly to make positive changes within the NYC Commission on Human Rights. She is continuing on in her mission to have bills passed that will bring about better disability laws.
NAPW provides an exclusive, highly advanced networking forum to successful women executives, professionals and entrepreneurs where they can aspire, connect, learn and achieve. Through innovative resources, unique tools and progressive benefits, professional women interact, exchange ideas, advance their knowledge and empower each other.
