Current parents, alumni, parents of alumni, and friends of St. Sebastian's School gathered at the Boston College Club for the 24th annual Boston Business Breakfast on Tuesday, November 23. It was wonderful to have the opportunity to network and reconnect after last year's event was cancelled due to the pandemic. St. Sebastian's Headmaster Bill Burke opened with a few words and said a prayer before Board of Trustees President Jim Elcock '77, P'08 spoke at the podium. After breakfast was served, Dr. Ed Ryan P'23, Director of Global Infectious Diseases at Massachusetts General Hospital, gave the keynote address.
Dr. Ryan began his speech by making the point that COVID-19 is here to stay. He emphasized the efficacy of the vaccines, encouraging everyone to get vaccinated and receive a booster shot if they haven't already, while also noting that people should continue to live their lives. Dr. Ryan continued to share facts and predictions about the pandemic and gave things he is thankful for during this time, such as the healthcare workers.
Thank you, Dr. Ryan, for sharing your valuable insight with everyone who attended this year's Boston Business Breakfast.
