A large crowd gathered last night to express their gratitude to Lois Silverman upon the completion of her term as Chair of the BIDMC. Among the group gathered were many of the previous chairs of New England Deaconess Hospital, Beth Israel Hospital, and BIDMC. Here they are wearing their white coats, one of our traditions to honor past leaders. (Don't worry, they are not allowed to practice medicine. Actually, alone among the group, Lois, being an RN, could.)
This remarkable collection of community leaders includes: John Hamill, Robert Melzer, Eliot Snider, Carl Sloane, Alan Rottenberg, Ed Linde, Ed Rudman, Lois, Norman Leventhal, and Steve Kay.
