On Sunday, June 25, hundreds of teammates will join together to run the 2017 Boston Athletic Association (B.A.A.) 10K road race to support Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH).
I have designated the BWH Connors Center for Women’s Health as the recipient for all funds donated to my run. The Division of Women’s Health at Brigham and Women’s Hospital was formed in 2002 and is committed to the discovery, dissemination, and integration of knowledge on women’s health and sex and gender-based differences; applying this knowledge to the delivery of care; and developing the next generation of trainees in women’s health research and clinical care.
BWH cares for patients from New England, throughout the United States, and from 120 countries around the world. Every day, BWH clinicians, researchers, and caregivers work to find new ways to predict, prevent, and treat the most challenging diseases of our time while delivering world-class care with a profoundly human touch. Our team is proud to run in support of this world-class hospital that is fueling quality patient care, innovative training, and life-changing discoveries that will benefit patients here in Boston and around the world.
