In the last 27 months, she managed over 500 referrals to the project.
Gail was an RN for 34 years, (a nursing professor for 10 years); starting her career in the NICU and finished it helping to change the system of care in Kern County! Thank you for your service, Gail!
Another experienced PHN, Arthur Manalac, RN, has assumed the duties of the Care Coordinator.
Also, our county Director of Public Health Nursing, Lucinda Wasson, is retiring at the end of June, after 35 years. A strong partner and advocate for care coordination, Cindy will be missed!
Transitions like this must be as seamless as possible to sustain our progress! We thank the Kern County Public Health Services Department, for its ongoing commitment to hire wonderful staff to support MVCCP's Care Coordination for Children with Special Health Care Needs.
