Harvard Advisory Council welcomes Gardens resident
It seems the last couple years have really stirred up passions in people regarding the health care system in America. No matter where you stand on the policies that take shape in the medical industry, it’s nice to know that there are still those special individuals who dedicate themselves to making things better for the rest of us.
Palm Beach Gardens has its own “Florence Nightingale” so to speak, a health care pioneer named Elizabeth Marie Fago who has recently joined the Systems Biology Advisory Council at Harvard Medical School.
With a quarter century of health care experience under her belt, Fago definitely seems like the right choice to lead the health industry in a “healthier” direction. She’s raised more than $1.2 million in two years as a chair for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society Gala, was appointed by Gov. Jeb Bush to the board of the Health Care District of Palm Beach County, and served on the Florida Committee of 200, the Florida Medical Association’s Council on Ethical and Judicial Affairs, Inc and the Florida Justice Reform Board. And if that doesn’t create an impressive résumé, how about attending the First United States-Russia Women Business Leaders’ Summit and the Helsinki Women Business Leaders’ Summit at the invitation of President George W. Bush, or having the library at Scripps named in your honor?
Ever the gracious appointee, Fago recently stated, “I am privileged to be a part of this exciting program … It is an opportunity to take part in initiatives that will improve healthcare in the future.”
With her three new centers offering the latest in technology and the brightest minds in the health care industry, not to mention one center right here in Jupiter, it seems she plans on bringing a little Harvard home and making us a little privileged too.
