  1. Looking forward to learning more about healthy ageing in my Boston neighbothood. I will be conducting a student survey and hope to interview community leaders, politicians, healh and welness professionals as well as community residents. While our communities are very different, your project is inspiring. It will be a valuable resource in developing my research project. Thanks for sharing.
