UAN Mourns Passing of President Cheryl L. Johnson, RN
Date:10/29/2007

Vice President Ann Converso, RN, to Serve as President

WASHINGTON, Oct. 29 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ --- The United American Nurses, AFL-CIO, today announced the death of President Cheryl L. Johnson, RN. Johnson was admitted to the University of Michigan Health System on Friday, Oct. 19, with a ruptured brain aneurysm and died early Sunday morning, Oct. 28, surrounded by her family and friends.
