Award Night

Congratulations to Billy and John for their chosen selections in Lahey Clinic’s Healthy Heart Calendar for 2012. Every year the fourth grade students from across Burlington submit an illustrated entry depicting what is needed for a healthy heart. The great work is then sent to Lahey Clinic where the tough decision is made, to select only twelve entries for the upcoming year’s calendar. This is no easy job and is judged by experts in the field and their patients of the Cardiac Unit.

Thank you Billy and John for helping these patients learn lifelong healthy routines through your amazing work.
