Empowering Effective Healthcare Decisions

Monday, July 22, 2019
The Dreamland, Nantucket


Thanks to all who attended the third annual Women + Wellness event on July 22nd, 2019, at The Dreamland and supported Nantucket Cottage Hospital.

Our goal was to help empower effective healthcare decisions, and we all learned so much from the MGH physicians, Dr. Lee Schwamm and Dr. Vicki Jackson, as well as our island clinicians Dr. Faith Frable and Dianne Bein.

And what a wonderful sendoff for our own Dr. Margot Hartmann, who received a beautiful bouquet of flowers and a standing ovation for her tireless years of service to the community as a physician and the leader of NCH.

You can now watch the event in its entirety below:
