2019 Hood River Hearts of Gold Benefiting Providence Hood River Memorial Hospital Foundation
Hearts of Gold is our signature fundraiser supporting health care and wellness programs in Hood River.
This year, proceeds will help bring Basecamp Cardiac Prevention + Wellness programming to the Providence Hood River Memorial Hospital campus. Here patients, heart care providers and community members will become their best, healthiest selves.
Your support will provide healthy lifestyle classes (such as smoking cessation, CPR and yoga), nutrition consultations, exercise programs, and scholarships to ensure funding is not a barrier.
Basecamp is where hearts get healthy. You can help improve heart health in Hood River.
2019 Hearts of Gold
Each year we bestow the Hearts of Gold Award upon two deserving community members whose dedication and commitment throughout their lives has made our area a better place.
It is our privilege to honor Susan Gabay and Robert Gobbo, M.D., as the 2019 Hearts of Gold award winners.
Susan Gabay knows that for many families – regardless of their means or education – living with mental illness without support can be overwhelming. Her work with suicide prevention and survivorship has had a major impact on families in the Gorge whose lives have been affected by mental illness. Gabay helped bring NAMI (National Association on Mental Illness) to town to offer monthly support group meetings and Gabay’s 1:1 advocacy is available to help families to speak out and ask for help.
Dr. Gobbo spent much of his career treating high-risk obstetrics patients and teaching students and peers any time he had the opportunity. The part of him that loves to teach guided him to eventually settle in Hood River where he helped create the Providence Family Medicine Residency program. Residents in the program have the opportunity to learn the full spectrum of primary care, including working in the hospital setting, seeing patients in clinic at One Community Health and going “outside of the walls” to provide care in remote areas or even someone’s home.
Their work exemplifies the Mission of the Sisters of Providence. Please join us as we thank them for their leadership.
