Susanne Spencer Duato
Boston Medical Center (BMC) is more than a hospital. It is a network of support and care that goes well beyond that of traditional medicine. BMC is able to address the complex range of medical, social, economic and emotional factors that affect the health of thousands of indivduals and especially our underserved areas throughout Boston and our surrounding community.
As a Nutritionist, I know the short and long term effects of malnutrition on the health and well being of a child. Because malnutrition is both a medical problem and a social/economic condition, the clinic takes a multidisciplinary approach to the care of these high risk children and their families. This approach recognizes that solving this problem must include more than just an amazing staff of Doctors and Nurses but education, preventative care, and nuturing a safe and secure family life. I am honored to be training and running the Boston Marathon in support of an organization such as BMC who provides care to every individual regardless of age, class or financial status allowing them to do more than just survive....but to help them THRIVE.
There are so many amazing BMC programs to highlight. However one in particular, the Grow Clinic for children is of speical interest to me personally. The Grow Clinic provides comprehensive specialty medical, nutritional, developmental and social services and dietary assistance to children from the Greater Boston area. As a Mother of 3 and a Nutritionist I support efforts to educate parents on how they can give thier child all the advantages to live a long healthy life. Early intervention is imperitive to helping young children thrive. The success of the clinic and all the services BMC provides depends on outreach services that are not reimbursed by insurance companies or government programs. Therefore, the survival of these services and clinics depend on private donations.
I make the promise to train hard for the Boston Marathon in feel blessed to be able to do so in support of Health for all individuals in our community. Donations of any amount are welcomed and appreciated. Thank you for supporting me and the Boston Medical Center!
