IMC Health Medical Centers is pleased to announce that Director of Finance Carolina M. Veira has been appointed to the Board of Directors of Deliver The Dream, a philanthropic organization that funds and organizes fun-filled therapeutic weekend reunions for individuals with life-threatening or life-altering illnesses and their families. Veira, an Ecuadorian-American residing in Miami, is proudly the only woman of color currently serving on the organization’s Board of Directors.
Veira, who also currently serves as the head of the IMC Health community initiatives, first heard about Deliver the Dream when the organization invited IMC Health to attend their annual fundraising gala. The more she learned about the organization, the more she fell in love with its mission and was convinced to involve herself and IMC Health with this wonderful organization.
“When a family member is sick, the whole family suffers,” said Veira. “I feel compassion for these families, and I am honored to be involved in Deliver the Dreams’ mission to reconnect these families in a stress-free environment where they can strengthen their bonds as a family and enjoy some much-needed leisure time.”
With nearly 15 years of demonstrated success in developing community initiatives and strategic partnerships, Veira works to strengthen and expand the organizations she values by spreading their message, working hands-on to carry out their missions and forging symbiotic partnerships between those organizations and IMC Health Medical Centers. As Leader of the Hispanic Star Miami Hub and now Board Member of Deliver the Dream, Veira prides herself in contributing the financial expertise and national partnerships she has developed in her career with IMC Health to the charitable organizations she is involved with.
“I truly love what Deliver the Dream does,” said Veira. “I am excited to combine my expertise in finance, corporate partnerships and community engagement, as well as my passion for serving others, to help this organization grow and impact even more families.”
