Boston Young Healthcare Professionals (BYHP) creates opportunities for young healthcare professionals to reach outside of their respective silos and gain exposure to the larger healthcare landscape by connecting with healthcare professionals in various fields. Additionally, as part of the organization’s efforts to improve social determinants of health in the community, BYHP joins forces with various volunteer organizations throughout the year. Please keep an eye on our calendar to see our upcoming BYHP and HealthIMPACT events.

    We will be reading Crazy: A Father's Search Through America's Mental Health Madness by Pete Earley.

    Earley details his family's story and offers a troubling look at bureaucratic apathy and the countless thousands who suffer confinement instead of care, brutal conditions instead of treatment, in the “revolving doors” between hospital and jail.
