Young & Healthy Pasadena Executive Director
Young & Healthy Pasadena Executive Director Mary Donnelly-Crocker will be the keynote speaker for the Seventh Annual South Pasadena Prayer Breakfast in May, the planning committee announced Monday.
The event’s theme, “A Better Normal: Nurturing Compassion in Our Community,” offers hope that we might emerge from the pandemic with greater empathy and respect, and with an improved wellness – not only in physical health, but in mental and spiritual health as well, the committee said.
Ms. Donnelly-Crocker has served as executive director for Young & Healthy, a nonprofit that provides quality health care for underserved children in the greater Pasadena area, since its inception 32 years ago. She is lauded for her expansion of access to care as well as her implementation of Trauma Informed Care.
