At a moving ceremony on Wednesday February 13, 2019 our non-profit partner Courageous Parents Network honored Dr. Pat O'Malley of Mass. General Hospital for Children with the first annual Ilene Beal Courageous Provider Award.
The inaugural, 2019 Courageous Provider Award was given to Patricia J.(Pat) O’Malley, MD in a moving ceremony at MGH on February 13th, 2019. Dr. O’Malley serves as Medical Director of the Massachusetts General Hospital Pediatric Palliative Care Service and as Assistant Professor of Pediatrics at Harvard Medical School. In announcing this award, CPN Founder and Executive Director Blyth Taylor Lord cited Dr. O’Malley’s “dedication to seeing and treating the family unit with an eye to alleviating the physical and emotional pain, fear and isolation common to so many facing lifespan-limiting pediatric illness … she truly makes a difference in how families cope and remember.”
