Joyce A. Murphy’s life mission to help the disadvantaged and advocate for compassionate care began at the tender age of 3, when her brother Brian was born with Hunter’s Syndrome. Despite a devastating diagnosis, the UMass Medical School executive vice chancellor rallied with her parents and five siblings to care for Brian for the duration of his short life.
