David Bor, Charles S. Davidson Associate Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School (HMS), was recently honored with the third annual Cambridge Health Alliance (CHA) Art of Healing Award. The award, which celebrates visionary men and women who transcend boundaries, joyfully embrace humanity, and profoundly inspire the healing of body and spirit, was presented to Bor on May 19 at the annual CHA Art of Healing Award Dinner.
Bor, who also serves as chief of medicine at CHA, has been a clinical and academic leader who has helped transform CHA into a nationally respected regional health care system and a voice for social justice. In addition, Bor has worked daily to improve the health of the communities served by CHA.
“Good medicine has components beyond excellent care and treatment, and David’s optimism, compassion, spirit of inquiry, and commitment to patients are central to CHA’s core values,” said Dennis Keefe, CHA’s chief executive officer. “His guidance will be pivotal as we evolve into a more efficient and patient-centered system, deepening a legacy that already has impacted so many.”
