Boca Raton Regional Hospital Foundation President Jan Savarick will be honored by the American Association of Caregiving Youth (AACY) at its annual “Back to School Breakfast” on August 21, 2013. Ms. Savarick is being recognized as an advocate for partnerships that provide opportunities for students, especially related to their healthcare, and for championing the needs of students who are the caregivers in their families. Proceeds from the breakfast will benefit the Caregiving Youth Project, a program of AACY that offers services to middle and high school children who care for ill, injured, elderly or disabled family members.
“We are proud of Jan for being honored by the AACY in this manner,” said Jerry Fedele, President and CEO of Boca Regional. “This is just one in a number of accolades she has received that recognize her ongoing contributions to both the community and to our Hospital.”
