I have always wanted to run a marathon and am excited to have the opportunity to run the Boston Marathon in 2015! I am running in support of the great work of the MGH Emergency Response Program. Given the occurrences over the last couple years with the Marathon Bombing, public health threats, including Ebola and MERS, and now with the recent events in Paris, I feel strongly that it is important to support the MGH Emergency Response Program. I know many of the physician leaders and clinicians, nurses, administrators, and many other staff of all disciplines who are involved in emergency responses. I, myself, have participated in a disaster drill acting as the Planning Chief. It was a great experience and great opportunity to see firsthand how the MGH is able to come together to ensure we can respond appropriately to emergencies or disasters and to keep our staff and patients safe.
We all hope that we should never have to call upon the expertise of our truly amazing clinical and operational healthcare teams, but in the event that it is necessary, I want to know that I helped contribute to the great work that my colleagues do each and every day -- and in times of need. Please join me in supporting my 2015 Boston Marathon Team: MGH Emergency Response and one of my personal milestones of completing 26.2 miles!
See you at the Finish Line on Marathon Monday: April 20, 2015!
