Dear members of the IHP community,

Our hearts were broken when we learned about the devastating tragedy in Duxbury on Tuesday evening. Yesterday, Mass General President David F. M. Brown, MD, and Senior Vice President for Patient Care & Chief Nurse Debbie Burke, RN, communicated that one of the individuals involved in this devastating incident is an MGH employee. Late yesterday, we also learned that this person is an IHP alumna, School of Nursing, Class of 2014. 

This tragedy is absolutely heartbreaking; our hearts go out to this family that has suffered such an immeasurable loss. We know that many in our community, especially those in the School of Nursing, may be struggling. 

Please know that resources are available should you or a colleague need support or assistance:

We extend our sympathies to all affected by this terrible event.
