Prisma Health Midlands Foundation Fellows

Prisma Health Midlands Foundation has determined that a distinct designation should be established to honor those individuals whose contributions of time, talent and resources towards the advancement of the Foundation’s mission and goals merit special recognition. After careful consideration, the title of “Fellow” was selected. The name is significant as it embodies the concepts of sharing similar interests and possessing wisdom as well as having a generous philanthropic spirit. Each Fellow has demonstrated his or her devotion to and passion for helping improve the quality of health care in our community. Their good deeds provide the base upon which Prisma Health Midlands Foundation is built.

Isabel Law (posthumously)

Isabel Law was a registered nurse and longtime nurse navigator for breast cancer patients, was an icon at the former Baptist Medical Center and in the community. She worked at Baptist from 1990 to her untimely passing in 2008. As a nurse navigator, she was the first person hundreds of women saw after getting a diagnosis of breast cancer, and it was her job to help them understand their diagnosis, navigate treatment, insurance and life after cancer.
