"The Olympic spirit is very much alive. Athletes are thrilled to be here, and there is much energy as we head into the two weeks of competition."

We are wishing our very own Gevvie Stone, MD the best of luck as she attends her THIRD #SummerOlympics rowing for #TeamUSA! Born in Boston and raised in Newton, MA, Gevvie learned to row as a high schooler and trained on the Charles River. She trained through college and med school, taking gaps to focus on rowing. Now an emergency medicine specialist, Gevvie is in Japan racing the women's double. Follow her Olympics trip and get race updates on her Instagram and Twitter @gevgevs.

Last week, Jill Brown, RN and Patty Wills, LicSW, were recognized as Front Line Healthcare Worker All-Stars by the Boston Red Sox. The program, organized by the Fanatics Foundation and MLB, is meant to recognize front line workers across the country who provided exceptional, “all-star” performance during the pandemic.

Jill and Patty shepherded BIDMC’s most vulnerable, disadvantaged patients through their hospitalization and to supportive continuing care, despite the incredibly limited post-acute resources, as nursing homes, rehabilitation centers, long term acute care, dialysis units and other supports were either limited or entirely closed due to COVID. Their patients are often disadvantaged, with limited social and financial resources, and typically suffering from a significant disability. Patty and Jill were able to find creative, supportive solutions for these patients despite COVID obstacles, and always demonstrated profound empathy and respect for our patients and their families.

Congratulations, Jill and Patty, for receiving this incredible honor!
