In Memoriam: Former KyANA President, Glenn Ruppert
Posted on: Thursday, January 21, 2016
Glenn Ruppert, 79, of Eddyville, died Tuesday, January 19, 2016. Mr. Ruppert was a CRNA for over 35 years, was a former KyANA President (1985-1987), and served on the AANA Board of Directors. He was also instrumental in obtaining the legislation in Kentucky that requires AA's to be a licensed PA. This brilliant move by Glenn and his colleagues has helped KyANA defeat AA legislation when it has been presented in our state. His efforts and advocacy have paved the way for our profession and many of the privileges CRNAs enjoy today. Rest in peace, Glenn.
