Bradford, Director of the Center for Population Research in LGBT Health & Co-Chair of The Fenway Institute with the Dr. Susan M. Love Award. More than 1,000 lesbian, bisexual women & their allies came together at the Boston Marriott Copley Place on Saturday April 11th for this fabulous elegant fundraiser that raised over $500,000 in support of the life-saving programs & services at Fenway Health. Each year the Dr. Susan M. Love Award is given to honor & celebrate a woman or organization that has made a significant contribution to the field of women’s health. The Love Award is given in honor of its founding recipient Dr. Susan M. Love, a pioneer in the fields of women’s health & breast cancer. This year’s recipient Dr. Judith B.
