LAS VEGAS – Dr. Florence Jameson, founder of Volunteers in Medicine of Southern Nevada (VMSN), has been recognized as a Queen of Hearts honoree for 2014. VMSN is a volunteer-driven nonprofit organization dedicated to providing the uninsured with access to preventative and comprehensive medical care.
Jameson was named one of 10 Queen of Hearts honorees for her advocacy and efforts in providing free medical care for Southern Nevadans. The Queen of Hearts event strives to honor women who have demonstrated exemplary leadership by contributing their time, talents and resources to serve the community.
“I am incredibly grateful to be recognized as one of the Queen of Hearts this year. The other women who have been acknowledged have done such incredible work in our community and it is an honor to be in their company,” Jameson said. “I believe everyone in the state deserves access to quality medical care, and with this distinction I can see that so many others agree.”
The third annual Queen of Hearts ceremony took place on Feb. 6 at Neiman Marcus in the Fashion Show Mall. The evening culminated in an awards presentation for the Queen of Hearts Court. All proceeds from the gala directly benefitted the Discovery Children’s Museum in the Donald W. Reynolds Discovery Center.
