On September 21, the Red Sox foundation recognized Operation Airway with a $5,000 check as part of the “100 Acts of Kindness” campaign in honor of Fenway Park’s 100th anniversary. The campaign has supported various non-profit organizations this year with donations, volunteer efforts and community events. Operation Airway, a joint program between the MassGeneral Hospital for Children (MGHfC) Pediatric Intensive Care Unit and Mass. Eye and Ear Infirmary (MEEI), provides airway reconstructive surgery and post operative care to sick children, and educates local doctors and health care professionals in Ecuador. Starting in 2010, Natan Noviski, MD, Chief of Pediatric Critical Care Medicine at MGHFC, joined forces with MEEI airway surgeon Christopher Hartnick, MD to conduct yearly trips to Ecuador aimed at evaluating and treating children with chronic upper airway problems as well as run airway conferences with lectures and hands-on conferences.
