Brentwood Church of Christ recognizes health care professionals for their dedication to community and veterans

The month of April is Minority Health Month, the perfect backdrop for Brentwood Church of Christ’s Health Organization’s semi-annual Board of Directors meeting and dinner held at church, located at 6425 N. 60th St. The theme of the event was “Healthcare Without Walls!” Brentwood Church of Christ is pastored by Bro. Leslie Odoms, who is also the chairman of the BHO.

Four nurses who have impacted the quality of healthcare for minorities and veterans were recognized by the Brentwood Health Organization during the meeting: Linda Masih, program manager for the Veterans Administration, Milwaukee; Jane Klee, a clinical nurse leader at Clement J. Zablocki VA Medical Center; Katherine A. Couture, a clinical associate professor at the Zablocki VA Medical Center; and Jacqueline Alomepe, an RN in the Medical-Surgical Specialty Unit at Zablocki VA Medical Center. Both Masih and Klee are consultants with the BHO.

Brentwood Health Organization is a nonprofit, independent health and community organization committed to improving the health status, to protect and promote the optimal health of individuals, families and our diverse communities through partnerships between physicians and other healthcare professionals, community leadership, assessment needs of the community, prevention and education through quality services.

This mission was established in the ethical and cultural principles of the faith-based tradition which inspires dedication, commitment and assurance through the talent of healing, and to the humanistic treatment we give to our community residents and staff.
