The MGH Center for Diversity and Inclusion virtually celebrated the graduation of 46 underrepresented residents and fellows in medicine on June 5. The 2020 graduating class included residents and fellows from 14 different departments.
For the past two years, HUBweek has brought together some of the most accomplished, creative and revolutionary leaders in science, technology and the arts for an extraordinary innovation festival. A unique civic collaboration, HUBweek was co-founded by Harvard University, the MGH, MIT and The Boston Globe.
From Oct. 10 through Oct. 15, the MGH and the HUBweek co-founders will host a variety of engaging programs, discussions, problem-solving sessions, behind-the-scenes tours, competitions and art installations.
HUBweek also will launch a first-of-its kind festival site, the exciting new “Heart of HUBweek,” on Boston City Hall Plaza. Attendees are invited to connect, learn, wander and create at the HUB. The MGH strives to jump-start conversations to explore innovations and ideas that captivate the world by participating in or hosting a dozen programs. All highlight the hospital’s missions of clinical care, research, teaching and service to the community.
The return of De-Stress Boston and The Art of Talking Science joins programs featuring innovations in artificial intelligence, addiction treatment and exploring the benefits of failure. In two shipping container installations at the HUB, the MGH will spark discussions about anesthesia and the unconscious mind, and how art can help our communities recover from the opioid epidemic.
Future Forums will feature MGH panelists discussing topics including privacy in a digital world, the future of digital health, artificial intelligence and the power of the brain to improve health. The goal is that all attendees learn something new and join in a sense of great pride in what Boston has accomplished in the field of medicine.
This year HUBweek welcomes sponsors Bank of America, Liberty Mutual, Millipore Sigma and Union Point.
All HUBweek programs are open to the public, and most are offered free of charge with advance registration required. For a full schedule and registration for MGH-hosted programs, visit www.manifestboston.org.
