The one hundred honoree: Elyse Levin-Russman, MSW, LICSW

Mass General Giving

“Elyse brings remarkable and dynamic leadership to Mass General’s outpatient social work unit. Over the past seven years, she has built a program that provides our patients with seamless inpatient and outpatient support while developing many new services for patients and their families. These offerings include parent support groups, teen outings and an arts program. Elyse also organizes our annual holiday party for patients and families. All of these initiatives have been overwhelmingly successful, improving the quality of life of our patients and their families. Elyse combines imaginative and resourceful leadership with excellent interpersonal skills, and she creates a warm, caring and culturally sensitive environment that is inviting to all of our patients. She has made a huge difference in the lives of so many children who are coping with life-threatening illness. “

— Dr. Howard Weinstein
