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.
Fall is known as the season of the harvest – and this was evident earlier this month at the MGH/North Shore Center for Outpatient Care. MGH Buildings and Grounds staff plucked dozens of pears from the famous denizen of Danvers, the centuries-old Endecott Pear Tree, known as the oldest-living fruit tree in North America. The tree is named for John Endecott, who served as governor of the Massachusetts Bay Colony in the 17th century. MGH/North Shore is built on Endecott’s original farm. Elena Sierra, RN, executive director for MGH/North Shore, says the pears are not what is found in today’s grocery stores. “They’re small and hard and were originally used to make brandy in the 1600s.”
