scholarship investments: support-a-student Thank you in advance for participating in tonight’s Support-a-Student pledge opportunity. All gifts made tonight will provide additional scholarship support to qualified MGH Institute students enrolled in one of our programs in nursing, physical therapy, speech-language pathology, or medical imaging.

Student Facts: • MGH Institute programs are in high demand, and very competitive. Only 40% of applicants are offered admission. • A health sciences education is an expensive investment; nearly 75% of the MGH Institute’s 1,000 students receive some financial aid. • Tuition and fees to complete the 14-month, Accelerated Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree is $44,125; while the three-year nurse practitioner program and three-year Doctor of Physical Therapy degree exceeds $90,000. • At current funding levels, scholarship awards cover an average of 35% of the total cost to complete one of our two- or three-year degrees. And this year, the Institute granted its first full scholarships covering 100% of tuition.

We must do more to keep these programs accessible to bright, talented young men and women. Here’s a sample of how your pledge can help defray the cost of a student’s education: • $2,500 provides scholarship assistance equal to a two-credit course, such as Ethical Issues in Health Care or Neuromotor Speech Disorders. • $1,000 can help students afford a top-quality education, learning from distinguished and awardwinning faculty, including a Fulbright Scholar. • $500 can help students cover direct expenses like their lab fees for Gross Anatomy in their first semester. • $250 makes it easier for students to afford everyday educational expenses such as textbooks, lab coats, or scrubs. • $100 can support students as they experience a range of valuable clinical placements in schools and hospital or community settings.

david laliberte Speaker The closest David LaLiberte ever got to an oven while growing up was when he would watch his mother and four sisters bake in their kitchen. Today, he’s making his family proud as the owner of Treat Cupcake Bar, Needham’s first cupcake boutique and the nation’s first interactive cupcake bakery. Before opening Treat, LaLiberte had great success in Boston’s investment scene. Starting fresh out of college as a lunch orderer at Fidelity Investments, he steadily rose through the company’s ranks while spending his evenings getting his MBA at Boston College. Within ten years, he became head trader for the Magellan Fund. In 1996, he joined Vinik Asset Management as their head of equity trading. He spent nine years there before retiring in 2005 to spend more time with his wife, two daughters, and numerous pets. Looking for a way in which to channel his creativity, he began to develop a retail concept around the growing popularity of specialty cupcakes. Treat Cupcake Bar opened last June, and it has been a hit for both kids and adults who can choose between several flavors and frosting, and 20 toppings, to create their own specialized dessert. He also wanted to give something back to his community, so he developed a program called “Treat Others Well.” Each month, a special cupcake is created in which 50% of the proceeds goes to a charitable organization. Although Laliberte has yet to master actually creating baked goods, he continues to work in close partnership with design and business consultants, his core management team, and the talented bakers to ensure the highest quality product.


scholarship funds raised this year In addition to the funds raised through tonight’s Scholarship Gala, the MGH Institute has received $413,000 in new commitments since last year’s Gala that will further enhance our scholarship resources: LUCY A. BURR SCHOLARSHIP $150,000 Established in 2006 with a gift from Mrs. Francis (Hooks) Burr, this endowed fund supports students demonstrating financial need with preference for students in the School of Nursing. Mrs. Burr pledged an additional gift this year to increase scholarships for the Accelerated BSN and Direct-Entry nursing programs. Mrs. Burr has been an advocate for quality patient care for nearly three decades and a member of the Massachusetts General Hospital Ladies Visiting Committee since 1979. MGH NURSES’ ALUMNAE ASSOCIATION $143,000 The Massachusetts General Hospital Nurses’ Alumnae Association represents the alumnae of Mass General’s original School of Nursing (1873–1981). The MGH NAA has supported a number of nursingrelated activities at the Institute over the years, including the funding of several annual student scholarships. In 2010 the association established a permanent endowment fund to guarantee scholarship support for nursing students in perpetuity.

ROBERT WOOD JOHNSON FOUNDATION $80,000 The MGH Institute was one of 63 nursing schools nationwide to receive funding under the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s New Careers in Nursing Scholarship Program, which was launched in 2008 to address the national nursing shortage and fuel the pipeline of diverse nurse faculty. Eight MGH Institute nursing students from underrepresented groups or disadvantaged backgrounds will receive grants of $10,000 each. JAMES C. MELVIN SCHOLARSHIP $25,000 The James C. Melvin Trust’s support of student scholarships at the MGH Institute dates back to 1988. Over the years the Melvin Trust has awarded more than $1.4 million to Institute students, and provided essential seed money to pilot a need-based financial aid program at the Institute. VIRGINIA DELAWARE ZAHKA NURSING SCHOLARSHIP $15,000 Sumner and Emeline Brown, SON ’59, established the Zahka scholarship in 1991 in memory of Mrs. Brown’s mother. Mrs. Brown, who passed away in 2006, was a graduate of the MGH Institute’s predecessor, the MGH School of Nursing, and worked as a nurse at Mass General for many years. Mr. Brown continues to be a close friend of the MGH Institute.

anne gately Putnam Family Scholar

Working with underprivileged families is the driving force behind Anne Gately’s goal to become a nurse practitioner. For the second-year student in the Master of Science in Nursing program, it’s the continuation of her mission of service that has included volunteering as an undergraduate at the University of Vermont, and a post-graduate stint with AmeriCorps. She found helping the poor while working at a non-profit organization to be challenging and empowering. But she soon realized she wanted to make a more direct impact in the lives of people. “I saw the critical role health care plays in strengthening a community, and I realized people need a good foundation of health or they will never be able to break the cycle of poverty,” says Gately, a 2010 Putnam Family Scholar. Upon graduating from the School of Nursing, she wants to help families understand how their medical history, lifestyle, and other risk factors can converge and educate them on how to make healthier choices. “So many of our community’s most vulnerable are not getting enough accurate information to improve their lives,” she says. “Without proper primary care, they will remain at a disadvantage.”

matt natanson Putnam Family Scholar

It took Matt Natanson three years while working full time to complete the ten science prerequisite courses he needed to apply to a physical therapy program. It was worth the wait. “It’s been great, especially this past summer when I was working in a clinic for the first time,” says the second-year student in the Doctor of Physical Therapy program. “I got to see all the little things that don’t always get translated in the classroom.” Like many students who attend the MGH Institute, he did not follow a straight line to his new career choice. The Sudbury native originally considered medicine upon entering the University of Rochester. At 17, however, he was not prepared to commit to more than 10 years of education, and switched to a dual major in English and Film, with a minor in Psychology. It wasn’t until several years later, after he saw how physical therapists helped out when his father was diagnosed with cancer, that pursuing a health care career reappeared on his radar. “The more I researched, the more I liked,” says Natanson, a 2010 Putnam Family Scholar. “I was drawn to helping people improve the quality of their lives in a practical and useful manner.”

kristi eckardt CVS MinuteClinic Scholar

Students at the MGH Institute find their passion for health care in myriad ways before arriving at the Charlestown Navy Yard campus. Kristi Eckardt discovered hers as a chaplain at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and the Dana Farber Cancer Institute. The Harvard Divinity School graduate spent several years ministering to the sick at the two Boston hospitals, during which time she observed the pivotal role nurses played in the lives of their patients. After launching a church and having a short stint teaching communication skills at an area college, she realized her true calling was to become a nurse practitioner. “I found out I really missed health care,” says Eckardt, the 2010 CVS MinuteClinic Scholar who is in her first year in the Master of Science in Nursing program. “I wanted the opportunity to become a multi-dimensional leader in nursing, and the MGH Institute was the place I felt I could learn to do that best.” It hasn’t taken her long to confirm her initial beliefs. “The faculty are extraordinary practicing clinicians, they are excellent classroom teachers, and they really want to teach,” she says. Upon graduating from the three-year program in 2013, she envisions working as a clinician and educator, and eventually mentoring future cohorts of nurses.

annette rodriguez ellis John Hancock Financial Services Scholar

“There is so much we still don’t know about autism,” says Annette Rodriguez Ellis. “But I do know that these kids also have something to say, they just don’t always know how.” Ellis is a second-year student in the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders at the MGH Institute. It was while working with children with autism as a special education teacher at the New England Center for Children that she discovered a way to have an impact in a more meaningful way. “I didn’t even know speech-language pathology existed,” says Ellis, the 2010 John Hancock Financial Services Scholar. "Once I learned about it, I discovered it was the perfect fit for me.” Ellis moved from her native Venezuela to New Hampshire when she was 13. Even though she was completely bilingual, issues surrounding communication resonated with her even as a psychology major at Dartmouth College. The speech-language pathology program’s dual emphasis on both educational and medical settings will allow her the flexibility to decide where she can make the most impact once she graduates next spring. "I’m attending the Institute because everyone should be able to reach their full potential, whatever it may be, and I believe we need language to do that.”

michael monteiro Sanders Family Scholar

Michael Monteiro thought recovering from a soccer injury while at Keene State College was a hardship until he met other patients who were recovering from nonathletic injuries. "Seeing them work through their own injuries helped me understand the important role physical therapists play," says the first-year student in the Doctor of Physical Therapy program. "I realized that unless they had a successful recovery, they would be unable to return to their jobs and provide for their families." Monteiro, the 2010 Sanders Family Scholar, decided he wanted to help people, but was unclear of his direction. After graduating with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and a short stint playing professional club soccer, he took a job as a mental health counselor. He then became a personal trainer where he reconnected his passion for athletics and physical fitness. He enjoyed the work, but soon realized the limitations in that role. "I would get to a point where I couldn’t help them any further, and it was frustrating,� he recalls. "I wanted to explore deeper into the science of physical wellness, and becoming a physical therapist was the way for me to do that."

viena yeung Massachusetts General Hospital Scholar

Viena Yeung began understanding the crucial role languages play in education after she and her family moved from Hong Kong to the Dominican Republic. A native Cantonese speaker, Yeung was enrolled in an American elementary school there, and mainstreamed after two years of English as a Second Language classes. She went on to earn a Bachelor of Arts in Romance Languages and Literatures from the University of Chicago, and a Master of Science in Education from Brooklyn College, the City University of New York. As a New York City Teaching Fellow, she taught second grade at a public elementary school in Brooklyn. Later, she worked as a teacher and manager of Early/Head Start programs in New York City’s Lower East Side, a neighborhood composed of mostly Chinese and Dominican immigrant families. Yeung discovered the value of becoming a bilingual speech-language pathologist who could help children with language disorders catch up with their peers. It spurred her to pursue a new career in communication sciences and disorders. The 2010 Massachusetts General Hospital Scholar has worked with children at the Speech, Language and Literacy Center during her current course of studies, which has prompted her to take additional courses at the Institute so that she can also earn a Reading Specialist license upon graduation. “The emphasis on providing real-world, intensive clinical and professional experiences really sets the Institute’s program apart from others,” she says.

amy mcdonough Oracle/Phase Forward Scholar

By the time Amy McDonough began in the Graduate Program in Medical Imaging this fall, she knew all too well about x-rays. McDonough, the 2010 Oracle Phase Forward Scholar, experienced extreme back pain after growing several inches as a 14-year-old. That led to an odyssey of tests and procedures that revealed she had scoliosis. After wearing a chest to bottom hard plastic back brace (“A teenager’s worst nightmare”) for almost three years, doctors then discovered she had a stress fracture in her spine, which led to more bone scans, MRIs, and x-rays. The pain eased by the time she graduated with a business degree from Suffolk University. But working in marketing was not fulfilling, and soon her interest in science (she originally was a biology major) and her x-ray experiences led her to a new career path at the MGH Institute. “I want to be one of those radiologic technologists that someone can look back and say ‘She really made me feel at ease’,” McDonough says, recalling the care she received. “Just to know I helped make things a little less stressful will make my day.”
