Nurses night at Fenway Park

It was time for our annual National Nurses Week Celebration at Fenway Park tonight. We gave out awards and tens of thousands of dollars in scholarships, many provided by generous donations from people in the community. The person with the celebratory tiara above is Angela Kelly, who received the first-ever award for excellence in orthopaedic nursing care. The award is named for Dr. Harris Yett, a beloved orthopaedic surgeon. Angela is seen here with Dr. Pete Panzica, Clinical Director & Vice Chief in our Department of Anesthesia.

Wally, the Red Sox mascot, was there signing autographs and flashing his famous smile. And of course, the famous Fenway hot dogs were available, too!

Oh, I have met Nurse Kelly and she is indeed a wonderful Nurse. I'm happy to see that her dad was able to come from Scotland for the occasion!
