  1. Having worked with Alice Bonner during her tenure as a Fallon nurse practitioner in the nursing home where I work, I have always founds her energetic, fair decision making a great quality. Since that time I've watched, as have many others in the geriatric healthcare system in Massachusetts, her rise to a beacon and a force in the pursuit of quality safe geriatric care. Congratulations.
