In recognition of his accomplishments as a senior nurse anesthetist at Boston Children's Hospital and a health care leader for Parters in Health, John Welch, M.S. ’12, received the 10th annual Dean Rita P. Kelleher Award at the Connell School’s annual reunion on Saturday, June 2, 2018. Joy Moore ’81, Hon. ’10, associate vice president for alumni relations and University commencement director, led a discussion with Welch that focused on social justice through health care equity for all, especially the marginalized in our communities. Following the discussion, alumni gathered for a reception and to reconnect with members of the Connell School community.
From the Kelleher award presentation
“Our work isn’t to provide charity care, but to create a new, more just social order. Our role is to turn and face injustice, to say ‘this is not right.’”
