We were proud to honor Laura Kurzrok, Executive Director of Eastern Bank Charitable Foundation, and Alice Lee, Executive Director of Lean Enterprise Institute.   They shared  poignant stories about transformative events in their lives that led them to their commitment to social justice and working for change.  Both spoke eloquently of the need to ensure that those most vulnerable among us get the care they deserve.
