Join us alongside our event chair, Fred M. Lowery of Thermo Fisher Scientific, as we celebrate Massachusetts Health Council’s 103 years of service, and we honor champions of health and wellness who share our passion for fostering a strong culture of health in our state.
MHC’s Annual Awards will bring together Greater Boston's local celebrity chefs paired with High School culinary students to test their culinary skills. We call it "Where Culinary Meets Cause." This year’s theme will highlight these wonderful vocational programs, call attention to the importance of high-quality school nutrition and give the students a chance to show off their culinary skills! Participating schools are Madison Park Technical Vocational High School and Waltham Public Schools.
MHC’s Annual Awards will raise funds for sustaining our efforts in advocating for policies and initiatives that foster healthier lifestyles, wellness, and prevention. By supporting the MHC, you contribute to the continuity of our ongoing projects. For example, our Student Health Careers Project will create a pipeline for students to pursue careers in the healthcare field. Together, we can empower individuals and their communities to thrive.
