Connecting Together: A Celebration of Hope & Gratitude
HopeHealth’s two annual fundraising events—An Evening of Hope & Gratitude and the HopeHealth Invitational—are important opportunities for us to connect with our donors and supporters.
Because of the Covid-19 pandemic, we have made the difficult decision to merge these events into one virtual event. We’re calling it Connecting Together: A Celebration of Hope & Gratitude and it will culminate on Saturday, September 12. The live virtual event will include special messages from HopeHealth caregivers, patients and families—and our Human Dignity Award honoree, the Rev. Janet Cooper Nelson. All gifts and sponsorships to this event are 100% tax-deductible.
Thank You to Our 2020 Leadership Sponsors

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.
