Chief Medical Officer Dr. Giesele Greene Speaks at High School “White Coat” Ceremony

Sisters of Charity Health System Chief Medical Officer Dr. Gisele Greene was the featured speaker at the class of 2015 “White Coat” celebration of achievement ceremony at the Cleveland School of Science and Medicine in February. Students in the class of 2015 received white coats that represented their decision to commit themselves to a field of study in science and medicine. The Cleveland School of Science and Medicine is a unique partnership between the Cleveland Metropolitan School District and nine Cleveland institutions to create the nation’s best college-preparatory school for high-achieving students interested in entering science or health-related professions. During her keynote address, Dr. Greene told students that the path they are taking will surely lead to making a difference for many over time, whether it be at the beside with the sick, or in the laboratory exploring the experimental. She also charged the students to honor the trust and promise that the white coat conveys to all who see it. She added, “You are here—get focused, stay focused, and stay the course. May your white coat envelope and empower you to excellence. You will succeed. You will succeed.” To see a video of Dr. Greene delivering her keynote address, click here. The school is hosting a fundraising dinner on April 27 at the Great Lakes Science Center in Cleveland.
