| November 12, 2019 | Parties

VNA Care hosted its 14th Annual “Heroes in Health Care” awards gala at the Mandarin Oriental on Saturday, Nov. 2nd, raising a record $340,000 to benefit the Visiting Nurse Association’s Nursing Services. This year’s honorees were Dr. Tony Coles of Cerevel Therapeutics and Yumanity Therapeutics, Dr. Steven Strongwater of Atrius Health, and Patricia Joyce, RN. Joyce is the first VNA Care clinician to receive a “Heroes in Health Care” award. Attending this year’s gala was Mayor Walsh, who shared the impact VNA Care had on his family as his father’s health declined nine years ago. The annual Boston gala is VNA Care’s signature fundraising event and has raised millions in essential funding for home health and hospice care in Massachusetts.
