Kitty Dukakis (left), wife of former Governor Michael Dukakis and author of books about her battles with addiction and depression, was honored by the National Alliance on Mental Illness at its conference in San Diego last week. Author of last year's "Shock: The Healing Power of Electroconvulsive Therapy" with former Globe medical reporter Larry Tye and the 1990 book "Now You Know" about addiction to alcohol and diet pills, she was recognized for sharing her struggles and reducing the stigma associated with mental illness.
Dr. Donald M. Berwick (left), a Harvard Medical School professor who heads the Institute for Healthcare Improvement in Cambridge, is among 15 finalists for an award honoring innovators over 60 for their work on social problems.
Five Purpose Prize winners will each receive $100,000 from the San Francisco think tank Civic Ventures in September. Berwick, 60, was nominated for his work to help hospitals improve care through the "100,000 Lives" patient safety campaign. Each finalist is awarded at least $10,000.
