Holy Redeemer’s Dr. DuPree a Philadelphia Magazine Health Hero Finalist
Posted Date: 10/15/2012
Meadowbrook, PA—October 15, 2012—Holy Redeemer is pleased to announce that breast surgeon Beth Baughman DuPree, MD, has been voted into the finals in Philadelphia magazine’s first annual Health Hero Challenge, a search for “local champions of health and wellness who are inspiring and helping the residents of their community to make changes in their lives to ensure a healthier future.”
In September, Philadelphia magazine first selected Dr. DuPree to compete in the Health Hero Challenge for her work as a breast surgeon and Medical Director of Holy Redeemer's Breast Health Program, where she diagnoses and treats women and men with breast cancer, and works to help her patients become thrivers—not just survivors.
As a result of the tremendous support Dr. DuPree received during the semi-final round, she has advanced to the Health Hero Challenge finals, during which she will compete against three other contestants to be named Philadelphia magazine’s first Health Hero. Fans are once again invited to vote in the contest, and can submit their ballots once each day by visiting holyredeemer.com/healthhero between Tuesday, October 16th and Monday, October 29th.
The winner of the Health Hero Challenge will be announced on November 7th, and will receive $2,500 for their favorite charity. Dr. DuPree has selected the Healing Consciousness Foundation, a charity she founded to provide funding for healthy cooking programs, fitness classes including yoga and Zumba, and complementary therapies that her patients can participate in before, during, and after treatment.
Dr. DuPree and her colleagues at Comprehensive Breast Care Surgeons have offices in two locations: Holy Redeemer Women’s HealthCare at Southampton, 45 2nd Street Pike, Southampton, and Holy Redeemer HealthCare at Bensalem, 3300 Tillman Drive, Suite 100, Bensalem.
