A Foundation spokeswoman said: “Dr Brock has promised to share with Bermuda his vision on the healthcare crisis facing Bermuda and the rest of the world. We are encouraging healthcare professionals and former patients of Johns Hopkins to attend the luncheon at which time Bermuda Health Foundation will also hand awards to this year's scholarship recipients.”
Bermuda Health Foundation was founded in ten years ago by brothers Philip Butterfield, Vincent Hollinsid and Dr Ewart Brown, along with their friend, the late K Murray Brown, for the purpose of honouring Bermudians who have provided outstanding public service. Additionally, Bermuda Health Foundation, whose mandate is to create a foundation for future generations, provides scholarships for Bermudian students aspiring to careers in the medical field.
Since its inception in 2002, the Bermuda Health Foundation has provided more than 30 scholarships to Bermudians of all ages who aspire to work in the medical field. Already several scholarship recipients are employed at the King Edward Memorial VII Memorial Hospital and other medical facilities both locally and internationally.
