Regina Cole, clinical research coordinator for the Herma Heart Institute at Children’s Wisconsin, gives 110% to her work, engaging with patients and families while working to support physicians, colleagues say. 

“She is selfless and dedicated, making herself available 24/7 and graciously working evenings and weekends to support our mission of improving outcomes for kids with congenital heart disease,” said Joy Lincoln, director of Cardiovascular Research for HHI. “Regina has touched the hearts and souls of so many of our patient families and team members, through the organization of HHI Parent Education Days and the family zoo picnics.”

Cole is also an advocate for the community and engages in diversity, inclusion and equity initiatives. She has been a leader on Children’s campus to ensure that processes and programs are impartial and fair, Lincoln said.

Cole has served on the Medical College of Wisconsin Diversity and Inclusion Action Committee for years as a member and co-chair. She is also a member of the MCW Community Citizenship Mission Engagement Group and leads the HHI Diversity, Inclusion and Equity group.
