Tell Us Your One Shining Moment

As you reflect on 2015, is there one memory that makes you especially proud to call yourself a BWHer? Maybe you recall a touching moment with a patient or family member, or perhaps you witnessed a colleague do something that made you proud. BWH Bulletin encourages you to share your “One Shining Moment” with the Brigham community for our annual year-end issue. Email your proudest moment of 2015, along with a related photo of yourself or the team involved, to bwhbulletin@partners.org by Friday, Dec. 11. Shining Moments will be posted on PikeNotes, and a selection will appear in the year-end print issue of Bulletin.
