Lunch with Kate

Event Time:
Event Location:
Wellesley Country Club

Every spring, Boston Medical Center hosts a luncheon at the Wellesley Country Club with BMC President and CEO Kate Walsh. The afternoon is a unique chance to catch up with friends and hear about some of BMC’s innovative programs and groundbreaking work using food as medicine.

“We know that much of what impacts a patient’s overall health goes well beyond traditional medical care. By treating more than the acute health issue at hand, we reduce ED visits and hospital admissions and address the underlying barriers to health, like housing and food insecurity.  This is exactly the approach that underpins Vision 2030—our ambitious goal of making Boston the healthiest urban population in the world by the end of the next decade.”

– BMC President and CEO Kate Walsh
