HSNHC’s: The Power of Health 2020 Gala!
We are very excited about hosting our first virtual gala entitled: The Power of Health. The event held on December 3, 2020 to-date has had more than 2,500 views since the night of Gala. Hosted by Television personality and motivational speaker Yadires Nova Salcedo, we honored three outstanding leaders who are making a difference in community health in unique ways. Robert Coughlin, President and CEO of MassBio was recognized for launching the 2.0 Challenge which encouraged Massachusetts Biotech CEO’s to address racial inequities in their companies; Pamela Everhart, SVP at Fidelity Investments for her leadership in financial literacy in diverse communities; and Dr. Ted Love, President and CEO of Global Blood Therapeutics, a California based research company that created a treatment for Sickle Cell Disease. Guests were entertained by three-time Boston Urban Music Award winner - Athene Wilson and the Friends Band!
