Dr. Paul Hart Named Senior Volunteer of the Year

Vital Signs: March 2011

ImagePaul L. Hart, M.D., a retired family practitioner, will receive the 2011 MMS Senior Volunteer Physician of the Year Award for his exemplary dedication to volunteerism and his lifelong sharing of medical expertise.

When Dr. Hart is not serving in Haiti, Peru, or any one of the numerous medically underserved areas around the globe, he is a tireless champion of equitable health care in Massachusetts. Locally, he founded volunteer-led free medical programs at Eppworth United Methodist Church in Worcester and the Worcester Free Eye Care Program in 1993 and at Congregation Beth El in Sudbury in 2004.

Dr. Hart's vision and energy, coupled with the dedication of the volunteer physicians and staff, allow the centers to offer completely free care to underserved patients. Dr. Hart has an excellent rapport with both patients and volunteers. His patients feel cared for and secure, and his dedication inspires the volunteers to return week after week.

The MMS Committee on Senior Volunteer Physicians' Health Center Program enables physicians who are no longer engaged in clinical practice to serve patients at health centers and free care clinics across the state by providing professional liability insurance.
