PHC Involvement In APDA Strengthened Cordero Wins 'Big Apple' Award


Bea Cordero, RN, received a Big Apple Award this past week from the American Parkinson Disease Association (APDA). Ms. Cordero works in the Family Health Center at Peninsula Hospital Center, where she transferred after having served as a rehab nurse. Her experience in an Alzheimer's group immediately singled her out as the right candidate for the APDA coordinator. She received the APDA's Salvatore Esposito Award for outstanding coordinator in 2001. Cordero credits her family and especially her husband, Fred, for their support of her many activities and she looks forward to another 20 years with APDA.
