We are proud to announce that the Juvenile Advocacy Group was awarded The Peter R. Lee Healthy Communities Award at this year’s Ounce of Prevention Conference on Tuesday, April 7th at the DCU Center in Worcester!
Ounce of Prevention, Working Together for Healthier Communities, is a statewide conference designed to bring together a wide range of stakeholders in support of healthier and more equitable communities in Massachusetts. In recognition of this, The Peter R. Lee Healthy Communities Award honors a coalition/partnership for their collaborative work to create healthier and more equitable communities. This award honors the spirit of Peter Lee, the late Director of the Massachusetts Partnership for Healthy Communities at Health Resources in Action. Peter was a leader in the healthy communities movement in Massachusetts and across the country before his untimely death on December 25, 2012. He personified the principles of Healthy Communities in his professional and personal life and was a longtime participant and organizer of this conference. We are very grateful to the Massachusetts Department of Public Health for this honor!
