We’re thrilled to announce that Southborough resident, Elizabeth L.B. Greene, a Partner at Mirick O’Connell, with offices in Westborough, Worcester and Boston, will Chair the 2014 Heart of the Commonwealth Celebration & Wine Tasting event, which is set for Saturday, September 20th, at the Tower Hill Botanic Garden!
As Chair, Greene will provide leadership for the event planning and recruitment of participants and sponsors. A Partner in Mirick O’Connell’s Litigation Group and a member of the Firm’s Health Law Group, Greene was selected by her peers in 2013 and 2014 for inclusion in The Best Lawyer’s in America in the field of Medical Malpractice Law – Defendants, and was named a Massachusetts “Super Lawyer” by Boston magazine and Law & Politics in 2013. Greene is a former recipient of the Worcester Business Journal’s “40 under Forty” professionals honored for her professional excellence and community service.
“Heart disease and stroke are our No. 1 and No. 4 killers, but with support from our local businesses we can help the American Heart Association make an impact and save lives,” said Greene. “I am proud to Chair this year’s Heart of the Commonwealth event, which will help raise awareness and critical funds for educational programs and lifesaving research taking place right here in Massachusetts.”
Greene has been an American Heart Association volunteer since she founded the Central Massachusetts Division Board of Directors seventeen years ago. Since then, she has chaired that Board for many years, currently serves as Chair of the Division Advocacy Committee, served as a member of the Northeast Affiliate and the Founders Affiliate Boards of Directors, and was the Chair of the Corporate Operations and Development Committee for the Northeast Affiliate Board. Greene has also been a dedicated Heart Walk volunteer and advocate for the organization serving as a “You’re the Cure” member, on advocacy and health initiatives committees at the local and affiliate levels, and participating in lobby days in Washington, D.C.
The Heart of the Commonwealth Celebration & Wine Tasting, which will attract more than 250 of central Massachusetts’ most prominent business and healthcare professionals, is the annual social event benefiting the American Heart Association and American Stroke Association in its mission to build healthier lives, free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke. We can be proud that over $31 million of American Heart Association funded lifesaving research takes place right here in Massachusetts. The evening will include a cocktail reception followed by wine & microbrew tasting, silent auction and live music performed by Rusty Scott Jazz Trio.

Our mission is to be a relentless force for a world of longer, healthier lives. For nearly 100 years, we’ve been fighting heart disease and stroke, striving to save and improve lives. Heart disease is the No. 1 killer worldwide, and stroke ranks second globally. Even when those conditions don’t result in death, they cause disability and diminish quality of life. We want to see a world free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke.
