Turrubiate Earns Spirituality Recognition

Stella TurrubiateStella Turrubiate (’97), a nurse at the Breast Health and Imaging Center at the League City Campus, received the Emma Josephine Loffelholz McMorris RN Spirituality Award for embodying compassion, communication and commitment to her field during the 24th Annual Nursing Conference sponsored by the Institute for Spirituality and Health at the Texas Medical Center. Turrubiate was nominated by Gail Kwarciany, an oncology clinical nurse specialist, who said Turrubiate “not only encourages others to be compassionate and respectful of others’ spiritual needs including each other, but she role models this behavior on a daily basis. Her quiet manner and gentle approach sets everyone at ease and allows effective interaction between herself and patients.”
