27th Annual BCIL Marie Feltin Award Ceremony
This event honors individuals and institutions who exemplify the pioneering spirit of the late DR. MARIE FELTIN, a tireless advocate for disabled and chronically ill patients. Marie was a founder of Boston’s Community Medical Group, East Boston Health Center’s Home Care Program and the Urban Medical Group, neighborhood healthcare services that focused on encouraging patients to become actively involved in their care as a critical means to bettering their health. Marie was always available for her patients and was a modern-day pioneer in providing medical care to society’s most neglected and vulnerable populations. The ceremony is held in support of BCIL and as a tribute to Marie’s legacy, which epitomizes BCIL’s mission of empowering individuals with disabilities to take control of their lives and live independently. BCIL promotes the CIVIL RIGHTS of all people with disabilities and our ENERGIZED ADVOCACY and SERVICES support and help create EQUAL ACCESS to healthcare, affordable housing, accessible transportation, and ADA compliance for thousands of Greater Boston residents each year, leading many to jobs, an education, and SELF-SUFFICIENCY for themselves and their families.
The annual BCIL Marie Feltin Award Ceremony will celebrate its 27th anniversary on Friday, April 28, 2022, at the Westin Copley Hotel. We will honor the work and legacy of Dr. Marie Feltin with this year’s awardees, remember those who we have lost in the past year, and had a lively presentation from a keynote speaker (TBA).
Along with the program, the evening will include an appetizer reception, cash bar, silent auction, and live music.
