From the Massachusetts Nurse Newsletter
June 2009 Edition
The New England Regional Black Nurses Association recently awarded Felicia Moore, RN and MNA member, with its “2009 Excellence in Nursing Award” at its annual Excellence in Nursing Celebration.
Moore, who has been working as a registered nurse in Massachusetts since 1998, is currently the director of clinical services at Nizhoni Health Systems in Somerville. She also once worked with Boston Medical Center as a community advocate and motivational speaker for patients and families coping with sickle cell disease.
At the celebration, which was held at the Boston Copley Marriott Hotel in February, NERBNA presenters said that Moore was this year’s award recipient because she “has demonstrated her leadership qualities with her commitment in developing and increasing services to underserved communities” and “been devoted to serving those clients who traditionally have difficulty accessing appropriate health care.”
