In the news: Nurse practitioner named CNN Hero

Stressed Out Nurses Weekly, October 5, 2009

 Throughout the year, CNN.com has named everyday, inspiring people CNN Heroes, highlighting those who help others. Faith Coleman, NP, was recently named a hero.

In 2003, Coleman was a contract worker with several doctors, receiving no health insurance when she learned she had kidney cancer. After her battle with cancer, Coleman, a mother of six, opened a free clinic with the help of her colleague, John Canakaris, MD. The clinic, called the Flagler Country Free Clinic in Bunnell, FL, provides medical care for the uninsured, and has treated more than 6,700 patients. The clinic currently runs with the aid of 120 volunteers and private monetary contributions.
