Kerr Award for Outstanding Service in Respiratory Health
The Kerr award is given annually to a New Hampshire person who has consistently demonstrated a selfless professional and personal commitment to furthering lung health in the region. Ms Feenan was originally a staff nurse in pediatrics and returned here in 1995 as a Pediatric Pulmonary/Allergy clinical nurse specialist. She has been program coordinator for the New Hampshire Cystic Fibrosis Care, Teaching and Research Center here.
In addition, Lynn regularly presents a course "Cystic Fibrosis 101" at the International Cystic Fibrosis Meeting. In addition to coordinating cystic fibrosis care in the region, Lynn is a certified asthma educator. She is an enthusiastic advocate for appropriate education, assessment and treatment of patients with asthma.
Lynn volunteered for many years at Camp Superkids, and regularly lectures and participates in the Asthma Educator Institute. She also works closely with children requiring tracheostomies and home ventilation. She has spent countless hours teaching families appropriate care, and making home and school visits to make sure care is appropriate and coordinated.
In receiving this well-deserved award, Lynn Feenan joins such notable previous recipients as Governor Jeanne Shaheen, Senator Judd Gregg, and our own Drs William Boyle, Steve Grandgeorge, and Worth Parker.
