Two MGHers have been recognized by Boston Business Journal as 2010 Champions in Health Care. Carmen Vega-Barachowitz, MS, CCC-SLP, director of Speech, Language, Swallowing Disorders and Reading Disabilities, is being honored for Community Outreach, and Theresa Gallivan, RN, MS, associate chief nurse, for Nursing. They will receive the awards Sept. 17.
The MGH has again been named to The Scientist’s annual list of Best Places to Work in Academia. The award, based on survey responses from scientists all over the world, is given to organizations that score highly in the following areas: job satisfaction, environment, research resources, pay, management, teaching and mentoring, and tenure and promotion. The MGH earned the 29th spot on this year’s list.
Jesse Jupiter, MD, of the Department of Orthopædics Hand Service, was appointed an honorary trustee of the AO Foundation. The AO Foundation is a nonprofit organization led by an international group of surgeons who specialize in the treatment of trauma and disorders of the musculoskeletal system.
