Get Moving this Spring! Join BYHP and Walk for Hunger!
Join BYHP to raise money for anti-hunger programs and promote awareness about hunger in our communities!
Project Bread was established in 1969 and has since supported a wide variety of programs across Massachusetts, including community-based meal programs, early childhood and school nutrition initiatives, increasing access to fresh local food resources, and more. Their goal is to find sustainable solutions to a problem that has been made worse in recent years by our economic recession. In their 2012 Massachusetts Status Report on Hunger, Project Bread estimates that food insecurity in Massachusetts has increased by 43% since 2008. Please join us as we do our part to help. For more information about Project Bread, please click on the logo above.

**Please arrive at the Boston Common by 8:15 am, so that we can begin our walk at 8:30 am. We will then walk until we get to the Chestnut Reservoir and assess whether or not we would like to walk any further. The entire walk is about 20 miles, and ideally we would like to do between 5 and 10 miles. After we finish, please feel free to come get some lunch and hang out with your fellow BHYPers.
Please e-mail Brendon Pires, Civic Engagement Committee Chair, at email@example.com with any questions. We look forward to seeing you!

Stay Strong Boston—Ways we can all Help
Message from our Civic Engagement Chair
It’s been a few days now since our city was attacked and if you’re like me, you’re still trying to make sense of it all. This is a difficult time for all of us, but luckily Boston is full of amazing people who are doing their part big and small to try to help us recover.
I was on the block in between Berkley and Clarendon Streets when I heard the first blast and then within seconds witnessed the second blast. My friend Steve knew what it was immediately and ran as fast as he could in the direction of the explosions. He, like many others, selflessly offered his assistance without any hesitation. I am in awe of his bravery.
Here are some ways that WE can ALL help:
- Donate some money to help the victims. Governor Deval Patrick and Mayor Tom Menino have announced the formation of The One Fund Boston to help the people most affected by the tragic events that occurred in Boston on April 15, 2013.
- Get involved in the community. Sign-up for one of our volunteer events! There are still spots available for our Tuesday visit to Cradles to Crayons.
Thank you to those of you who risked your lives to help the victims of this horrible tragedy, and for those of you that have family members or friends or co-workers who were injured, know that our hearts are with you.
Civic Engagement Committee Chair
To connect emerging and passionate healthcare professionals in the greater Boston area to develop strong cross-sector relationships and build knowledge across all healthcare fields.
Healthcare needs professionals with diverse cross-sector knowledge, perspectives and relationships to continue to drive improvements.
In order to address this need and continue Massachusetts’ legacy of healthcare innovation, Boston Young Healthcare Professionals (BYHP) will serve as a forum for young professionals across all healthcare fields to connect, collaborate, and share knowledge and experiences. BYHP will accomplish this by providing members and the broader healthcare community with educational forums, professional development and networking events, and targeted civic engagement opportunities.
It is our vision for BYHP to serve as a catalyst and resource for the development of young and emerging healthcare professionals who will work together to ensure informed healthcare improvements and to navigate the immense challenges and opportunities in healthcare.
