Lahey Winchester Hospital Leadership Council Event at Wright-Locke Farm
Mar 2, 2017 | By: Johnson Photography, Inc.
Building local partnerships is something we feel strongly about. Naturally, it was fun to photograph such an event that nurtures this belief. The evening program was held at Wright-Locke Farm, where experts spoke on health and wellness as well as a litany of other related topics.
This event was sponsored by the Lahey Winchester Hospital Leadership Council, which is “made up of female community leaders and physicians with the goal of education and empowering women to be their own healthcare advocates,” according to their site.
The event was designed to bring people in the community together to educate them about health and wellness, and it featured a fantastic panel of experts from Winchester Hospital. Dr. Arlan Fuller, Nurse Practitioner Janet Gallant wood, Registered Dietitian Helen Long, Dr. Catherine Celler, and Bistro 5 chef and owner Vittorio Ettore all spoke—and they were all engaging and interesting to listen to as they answered questions from women’s health issues to diet and everything in between. What a great way for local physicians to be part of the community!
Vittorio Ettore put out a beautiful, elegantly presented spread from Bistro 5 for all to enjoy. He spoke about his farm-to-table food as he, along with the other guest speakers, chatted with guests before they spoke at the panel and hosted a Q&A. I thought it was a great idea to have that farm-to-table food there at the Wright-Locke farm itself—it was the perfect backdrop for the event!
Walking on the property at Wright-Locke, you immediately feel a sense of peace come over you. When we entered the rustic and charming barn to hanging lights, fresh cut flowers from the garden, and the sun setting through the back doors, that relaxed, easy tone permeated everything and everyone. The worn plank floors and rustic old farm tools in the background only added to the experience of the evening. I loved how the light grazed across the floor to the tall tables with flowers lining the place.
It is so important to strengthen community ties and relationships through partnerships, events, and outreach, and I was honored to be part of this event. We are so fortunate to have this knowledgeable group of women who care so deeply about our community—and we are even luckier to have educational programs and chances to volunteer our own time and talents.
