Community Servings’ Food Service Dir. Joins Community Health Leadership Program
The Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts Foundation announced the 10th group of emerging community health leaders selected for the Massachusetts Institute for Community Health Leadership program. Kevin Conner, Director of Food Service at Community Servings, the Jamaica Plain-based nonprofit provider of medically tailored meals, is among the participants. The MICHL program brings together professionals who currently direct or manage programs at a variety of health care organizations across Massachusetts for a series of classroom, peer-to-peer and professional learning opportunities. “The goal for the MICHL program is to help participants increase their own personal impact, strengthen their effectiveness in their organization, and enhance their respective organization’s influence in addressing challenges and opportunities in today’s increasingly complex health care environment,” said Audrey Shelto, president of the Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts Foundation. The MICHL class of 2018-19 – sponsored in part by a new partner, The Boston Foundation – is comprised of 18 participants from state agencies, hospitals, nonprofit community health centers, mental health providers, and advocacy groups serving low-income and uninsured individuals and families.
