Dr. Alice Lam , May 2020
We are thrilled to announce that Dr. Alice Lam is Epilepsy Foundation New England’s Volunteer of the Month for May. In addition to her busy schedule at Massachusetts General Hospital, Dr. Lam has partnered with EFNE for several years to facilitate SHARE groups for adults with epilepsy and their loved ones. Dr. Lam generously donates her time on nights and weekends to hold these groups, and has recently increased their number and frequency to provide additional support to those who are feeling greater isolation as a result of Covid-19. Dr. Lam’s groups are well-attended because she is welcoming, warm, and always happy to answer questions in a positive and reassuring manner. She understands the complex challenges of those who struggle with epilepsy and is dedicated to improving the physical, social, and emotional well-being of people within our epilepsy community. We are beyond grateful to Dr. Lam for giving her talent and time to the Foundation and those we serve. If life was a Twitter page, #kindness, #benevolence, and #compassion would be trending because of Dr. Alice Lam!
