Elyse Cherry, CEO of Boston Community Capital, was presented with the Dr. Susan M. Love Award by Dr. Jennifer Potter, Fenway Health’s Director of Women's Health at the 2014 Women’s Dinner Party. Cherry stated, “I salute Fenway Health & all of the women & men present for putting their shoulder to the wheel & helping to build the world we want.” Boston Community Capital’s mission is to build healthy communities through socially responsible investment & is personally committed to economic justice & equality, especially health equality for women & families throughout Massachusetts.
