The stars behind the stars

While the athletes grabbed the spotlight with their performances at Special Olympics Connecticut last month, more than 50 Yale New Haven Health employees provided behind-the-scenes support. Employees from a variety of departments throughout the health system volunteered the weekends of June 3 and 10, helping out in the Healthy Athletes venues and at swimming and track and field events.


A team from YNHHS’ Treasury department lent a hand at Special Olympics Connecticut, including Mallika Nair, senior investment strategist; Kristina Miner, insurance and risk management coordinator; and Michael Angelini, senior vice president and CIO.


Some YNHHS volunteers used their skills to help keep athletes healthy during the event, including (l-r): Paul de Regt, physical therapist; Jane Silva, physical therapy assistant; Paula Hernandez, physical therapist; and Mary Cantwell, physical therapist.
