Honoring Dr. Josephson
In November, Mark Josephson, MD, Chief of Cardiovascular Medicine at the CVI, will be honored by the American Heart Association (AHA) with the Eugene Braunwald Academic Mentorship Award. This award is given out annually by the AHA to honor an individual whose academic career includes a long-term record of consistent and successful mentoring of promising young academicians.
Earlier this year, Dr. Josephson won the prestigious Paul Dudley White award, bestowed by our regional chapter of the AHA.
Walking Proud at the Heart Walk
The weather was gorgeous and the fundraising successful on September 7, 2013, when BIDMC President and CEO Kevin Tabb, MD (right, with a pal), led the Boston Heart Walk along the Charles River Esplanade. Overall, Bostonians raised more than $1.7 million to support the American Heart Association’s education, research and emergency programs.
More than $154,000 of that total was raised by a bigger-than-ever BIDMC team of 700 employees, doctors, patients and friends. Thank you to all who joined us!
Official Team of ...
Red Sox fans are well aware that BIDMC is the Official Hospital of the (2013 World Series Champion) Boston Red Sox. But did you know the Sox are the Official Team of BIDMC? Well, that’s what the lettering on a sea of green T-shirts said at the Heart Walk. Patterned after the Fenway scoreboard, the shirts epitomized the partnership BIDMC and the Red Sox formed to support the Heart Walk.
Also there were Wally the Green Monster, the Sox’ 2004 and 2007 World Series trophies and legendary players Jim Rice, Luis Tiant and Rick Miller, who graciously signed autographs for Heart Walk participants. Thanks, Sox!
