MA Healthy Aging Collaborative Receives Award from Dept. of Public Health

May 17, 2017

The Massachusetts Healthy Aging Collaborative accepted the Peter R. Lee Healthy Communities Award from the Massachusetts Department of Public Health at the annual Ounce of Prevention Conference at the DCU Center in Worcester on March 28th.

Each year, the Department of Public Health recognizes a Massachusetts coalition/partnership for collaborative work to create healthier and more equitable communities. This is the second year in a row a Tufts Health Plan Foundation grantee was selected for this award. Age-Friendly Berkshires was honored last year.

James Fuccione, senior director for the Collaborative, accepted the award with several
Collaborative members.
