Dr. Stephen Boswell resigns from Fenway Health over mishandling of sexual harassment complaints

Sexual Harassment, Dr. Stephen Boswell, Dr. Harvey MakadonDr. Stephen Boswell has been the chief executive of Fenway Health since 1997 and under his leadership he has turned Fenway Health into one of the nation’s leading LGBTQ health centers, with a $100 million budget that employs about 500 people and serves 29,500 patients annually.

However, his mishandling of sexual harassment complaints forced Fenway Health’s Board to ask for Dr. Boswell to resign this weekend. In his place M. Jane Powers, Fenway’s director of behavioral health and the only woman in senior management has been appointed as an interim chief, while a search is conducted for a permanent replacement.

Criticism of Boswell’s handling of sexual harassment complaints that centered around Dr. Harvey Makakon came to light recently when it was learned that he did not heed the advice of legal council which recommended firing Dr. Makadon, after conducting a thorough investigation into the allegations made by staff. According to The Boston Globe, Boswell also failed to inform Fenway Health’s Board about the allegations (including a$75,000 settlement). You can read the full story in The Boston Globe here.

Holiday gift idea: Warwick Rowers 2018 calendar

Are you and your friends planning a Yankee Swap or Secret Santa? Do you have a friend who is tough to buy for and you can’t spend a lot of money? Why don’t you consider the Warwick Rowers 2018 calendar?

At just under £10 you really only have to worry about ordering it in time to get here before your holiday party or gift swap.

For those who may be unfamiliar with the male rowers at the University of Warwick Boat Club, these men have been creating & selling calendars since 2009. Proceeds raised from the sale of their calendars, videos etc go to

  • Promote positive, inclusive and respectful attitudes towards people of all genders and sexualities through the content that they create
  • Fund university rowing and particularly to make rowing more accessible to a wider number of students
  • Ongoing development of Sport Allies, a registered charity with a mission to promote sport, and particularly team sport, as an inclusive and supportive route to personal growth for everyone

If none of that really matters, it doesn’t hurt that each year the young men are so damn good looking in that ‘guy-next-door’ sort of way. For their more revealing photos you’ll have to check them out online or better yet peruse their many products for sale, here.
