Black Nurses Association Gift (Second Choice)

Sharron Coffie, manager of the Heart and Vascular Service Line Program at Froedtert Memorial Hospital and President of the Milwaukee Chapter of the Black Nurses Association, receive a $1,000 check from Molina Healthcare of Wisconsin on July 23 toward the Brenda Dockery Scholarship Fund. Ms. Dockery (inset), who died last spring at age 60 from an extremely aggressive form of cancer, was a past president of the Milwaukee Chapter of the Black Nurses Association. She was also served as a nurse practitioner at Milwaukee Health Services, Inc., a federally qualified health clinic located at 2555 N. Martin Luther King Drive for five years. One of Ms. Dockery’s professors, who later worked with her to encourage low-income women to get breast cancer screenings, described Ms. Dockery in an obituary in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel as “accomplished, committed and passionate.” Presenting the check to Ms. Coffie on behalf of Molina Healthcare of Wisconsin are (from left) Babette Honore, associate vice president of community engagement and Kelly Macon, manager for provider services.
