An Evening of Hope & Gratitude: The HopeHealth Gala

In response to the growing concern around the COVID-19 virus, an evening of Hope & Gratitude will be rescheduled from May 30 to September 12 at the Providence Marriott Downtown. HopeHealth has an important role in caring for a most vulnerable population. Our goal is to ensure that our community is as safe as possible and can continue to depend on HopeHealth when they need us most.

We continue to raise funds to support our patients and families and the Gala is a very important part of that effort. Join us for a special evening of dinner, dancing and live jazz music as we honor our mission within the Rhode Island community. This event benefits HopeHealth's hospice services.

Seventh HopeHealth Human Dignity Award

We're honored to be presenting the Reverend Janet M. Cooper Nelson, Chaplain of Brown University, the seventh HopeHealth Human Dignity Award at this year's gala. This special award is given to people who have dedicated themselves to the core values of hospice: to offer comfort, compassion and dignity to patients at the end of life and hope and healing to their families. Previous recipients of the Human Dignity Award were Stanley Aronson, MD, Rabbi Leslie Gutterman, Milton W. Hamolsky, MD, Edward Martin, MD, MPH, Arthur S. Robbins and Fred Schiffman, MD.

Janet Cooper Nelson was appointed Chaplain of the University, Director of the Office of Chaplains and Religious Life and faculty member at Brown University in 1990. As Brown’s Chaplain she leads a multi-faith team of associate chaplains and oversees student religious organizations. She earned degrees at Wellesley College, Tufts University and Harvard Divinity School.
