June's hospital hero is oncology clinical trials nurse, Anne McPherson.
Anne has such a special rapport with her patients that she will

Anne, who never wastes an opportunity to promote clinical
trials, is equally highly valued by her colleagues and is always
willing to help those less experienced.

why she is a hospital hero.
