Garvey Memorial Walk June 3
The many friends, colleagues and family members of the late Joanne Garvey, a revered BWH nurse for more than 20 years who died from cancer Jan. 3, 2008, organized a fund-raising walk to support a scholarship established in her name.
Proceeds from the three-mile walk-a-thon will support the Joanne M. Garvey, PhD, Conference Scholarship Fund, which will help PhD students attend national research or policy conferences with the intent to support their program of research.
To join a BWH team walking in her memory or to learn how to contribute to this scholarship fund, contact Christine Dutkiewicz, RN, nurse manager of Care Coordination, or Cheryl Ventola, RN, of Care Coordination.
Additional information and pledge forms are available online at www.cnhs.umb.edu/nursing/programs/phd/index.html
The walk is Tuesday, June 3, at 6 p.m., U-Mass Boston, at Fox Point Pavilion and Boat Dock.
