NHS Boston came together for a summer get together at Committee Restaurant with members, prospective members, and Heritage Greece Program alumni. It was a lovely evening geared toward mentoring and networking with the Heritage Greece alumni.
Dr. Robert Green is a medical geneticist and physician-scientist directs the G2p Research Program in translational genomics and health outcomes in the Division of Genetics at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, the Broad Institute, and Harvard Medical School. His talk at Strega Waterfront Boston included intriguing information on the application of genetic research and knowledge that will benefit our health. The reception had a great mix of NHS members, Heritage Greece alumni, and guests, including NHS friends and partner organizations (American College of Greece, Alpha Omega, Benaki Museum, Boston University).
The National Hellenic Society (NHS) and National Hellenic Museum (NHM) programmatic collaboration on the traveling exhibit, “The Spirit of the Marathon” was showcased at the prestigious Museum of Science in Boston in celebration of the 119th running of the Boston Marathon. The Exhibit traces the history and impact of Marathon from its ancient roots, when the Greek herald, Pheiddippides, after a grueling 26.2 mile run, proclaimed victory over the Persians: defeat would have been an end to Athenian democracy and would have changed history.
NHS Boston Co-Chairs are working with the Alpha Omega Council to organize joint programs. Plans also are underway to bring the National Hellenic Museum’s “Spirit of the Marathon” exhibit to Boston.
WASHINGTON (June 14, 2012) — As part of the National Hellenic Society’s (NHS) Boston roll-out, the Society coordinated a forum in collaboration with the Alpha Omega Council and National Hellenic Student Association for Greek American entrepreneurs presenting their business models to a group of business experts. The event was held at Boston College in May.
