EVENT: 2017 Boston Marathon
EVENT DATE: Apr 17, 2017
I am running the Boston Marathon this year! I have joined Team BMC, the charity team associated with Boston Medical Center .
BMC is the hospital affilliated with Boston Univerisy School of Medicine where I have been on faculty for 14 years. The students I teach in basic science, go on to complete their clinical training, often right at BMC. Through my students and interactions with the medical staff, I am very aware of the amazing work that takes place at BMC every day.
BMC is all-inclusive. From the privately insured to the homeless, the Emergency Department and Level I Trauma Center offer outstanding care to patients from all walks of life. For many of our patients, our ER not only addresses acute medical issues, it serves as their primary care clinic where they seek treatment for everything from sore throats to sickle-cell disease
This year, fundraising efforts from Team BMC will be dedicated to the hospital’s Building the New BMC campaign which will include the construction of a new, state-of-the-art Emergency Department for the region. Boston Medical is the busiest provider of trauma and emergency services in the region, with more than 130,000 emergency visits and more than 2,000 trauma admissions per year.
Understanding that trauma does not discriminate and anyone may need our services in a moment’s time, Team BMC stands committed to ensuring Boston Medical Center remains one of the very best trauma centers in the country.
Thank you for supporting Boston Medical Center in our mission to provide exceptional care, without exception!
