As Harvard Street Neighborhood Health Center celebrates its 50th anniversary with a gala event on Friday evening, it will herald a half century of providing care to residents along the Blue Hill Avenue corridor and impacting thousands of lives. Residents of the neighborhood rely on the health center for everything from dental appointments to flu shots. But perhaps no resident has felt the center’s impact as personally as Chef Lee.

“Harvard Street has saved my life— twice,” says Lee, a Dorchester native and longtime owner of Chef Lee Catering. Lee has paid regular visits to Harvard Street since 1973. In 1997, a check-up revealed an unknown health issue.

“They did an EKG and saw that I had suffered a heart attack,” said Lee. “I was shocked. I knew there was stress in my work and life, but I had no idea this had happened. They sent me to the best cardiologist in the country. They saved my life.”
