At a recent press conference at the Foxwoods Theatre, Reeve Carney, star of Broadway's Spider-Man Turn Off the Dark, announced a new initiative to honor "Everyday Heroes," as well as the program's first honoree, nurse practitioner Diane Pagan.

The "Everyday Heroes" program will be conducted entirely online on Spider-Man Turn Off the Dark’s official Facebook fan page. The nomination process is open to the general public, and those who wish to nominate a hero can visit the Facebook page and complete the nomination form.

Each month, a special committee made up of Spider-Man company members will choose an honoree from the pool of nominees. The honoree will be invited (with a guest) to a performance of Spider-Man, receive a special public acknowledgement and be invited backstage for a meet-and-greet with the cast. In addition, the Broadway musical will make a donation to the charity of the honoree's choosing.

The program's first "hero," Pagan, has been working for the Medical House Call Program at Montefiore Medical Center for six years. She travels to different areas throughout the Bronx and visits very sick homebound patients to provide care. She is a certified geriatric care manager, who sees a mix of elderly patients and younger patients.
