Dr. Gonzalez received the "Dr. Jim O'Connell Award," which honors someone who embodies the spirit of BHCHP in providing medical services to the most vulner- able members of society. "Our patients often have unique and complex derma- tological problems, and for many years Dr. Gonzilez has generously given his time, professional expertise and compassionate care to them," said BHCHP Execu- tive Director Robert Taube. Since 1998, Dr. Gonzfilez has treated BHCHP patients on the streets and in clinics. He was instrumental in establishing a clinical rotation at BHCHP in the Harvard Medical School Der- matology Training Program.

That campaign enabled BHCHP to create Jean Yawkey Place, a renovated historical building that unifies many of BHCHP's core medical services. "From the beginning, Suzy embraced BHCHP's dream of a home characterized by hope, trust, dignity and heal- ing, and she was unwaver- ing in her dedication to mak- ing it a reality," said Jim O'Connell, MD, president of BHCHP. "As the co-chair of our capital campaign, Suzy provided invaluable strategic direction and led the way in engaging the city's business community. She is a dear friend and we are so pleased to be honoring her." Founded in 1985, BHCHP has evolved into the largest and most comprehensive health care for the homeless program in the country, de- livering services to more than 11,000 homeless men, women and children a year at more than 80 shelters and sites.

Greater Boston pho- tographer John Harrison was recently in New York (prior to the Tony Awards) for what he calls his "annual Theatre World Awards ad- venture." His best friend of 50 years, author/drama critic Peter Filichia, emcees the event every year. As it turned out, two of the Theatre World Award win- ners (Ellen Barkin and John Larroquette) would win Tony Awards the following week on June 12. According to John, "It's always a fantastic event and this year was over-the-top sensational. John Lloyd Young, one of the originals in Jersey Boys opened the show singing one of the songs from Jersey Boys. He tore the roof off of the theater .... " By the way, congratula- tions are in order to John who recently appeared on a segment of Emily Rooney's "Greater Boston."
