The event planners at MIT invited Enna and I to document a very special evening for one of their luminaries - Ed Scolnick. We were fascinated to learn about this scientific visionary. His work covers a diverse array of diseases and their treatments including HIV/AIDS, Cervical Cancer, Hepatitis B, Schizophrenia and Bipolar Disorder and many others - when his colleagues began speaking we knew we were among greatness. Meeting Ed and seeing the love, support, and respect he received was inspiring! He was celebrated throughout the day by several presenters who spoke of his vision, determination, risk-taking, decisive leadership style, and amazing ability to mentor. After the presentations and reception MIT gave the Scolnick family a private dinner party where they celebrated Ed's birthday as well as his wife's birthday. MIT's in-house event planner/coordinator Lindsay Wetmore and East Meets West Catering did an amazing job! We were very flattered that MIT asked us to bring our style of photography to this event, and honored to be there for the Scolnick family.
