The Visiting Nurse Association of Boston held its annual Heroes in Health Care gala in the Mandarin Oriental’s grand ballroom over the weekend, celebrating the VNA’s 130th anniversary as well as honoring three community health care leaders. Over the years, the black-tie event has raised about $2.5 million to benefit the VNA of Boston’s Maternal Child Health Program and Charitable Care Fund. The three honorees of the evening were Diane Bergeron, former vice president of hospice and advanced illness management for VNA Hospice and Palliative Care; Michael Minogue, president and chairman of Abiomed; and Mutual of America, represented by president and CEO John R. Greed. Attendees included gala co-chairs Linda Hope-Springer and Loriann Meagher and honorary chairs Belinda and Henri Termeer; Ronald Walker, Massachusetts secretary of labor and workforce development, and his wife, Shawnda Walker; Mary Ann O’Connor, VNA Care president; Steven Strongwater, president and CEO of Atrius Health; and Dr. Mallika Marshall, WBZ-TV medical reporter.
