A Message from Dean Judy Beal:
Dear SNHS Friends,
This past month in Boston has been difficult for us all. I am writing to let you know that all SNHS students and faculty are safe, but many were intimately involved during that tragic week in our beloved city. I remain still in awe of the professionalism of our many students and faculty who were volunteering in the medical tents and working in hospital ERs on Marathon Monday.
Subsequently, many students were in their clinical placements during a bomb scare on Wednesday at Brigham and Women's and at Children's Hospital, and also at Brigham and Women's during the Friday lock-down. Our students were calm, measured, mature, and professional. Our faculty spent hours tracking down students in clinical sites, ensuring their safety, and attending to their mental health following what was a life altering experience for most. I am proud to be their dean, and I am proud to be a health-care professional. We ARE Boston strong. We are SNHS STRONG. These young students and committed faculty did us all proud.
I am looking forward to celebrating their strength and resolve during graduation week.
