On April 24, 2017, PHE Boston’s college volunteer health educator leaders, the “Co-Coordinators” (or CC’s), celebrated the close of the 2016-2017 academic year with a dinner hosted by PHE Boston Board Member Janet Nahirny in Chestnut Hill, MA. Co-Coordinators are essential to the Peer Health Exchange model, helping organize, train, and lead Boston’s other 270 volunteer health educators at Harvard, Tufts, Northeastern, and Boston University. This year, under their leadership, PHE Boston successfully operated in 17 schools in Boston, Malden, Lynn, and Revere, and hosted 990 health education workshops.
This year is PHE Boston’s 10th Anniversary, and we will present a total of 10 PHE Star Awards to individuals during this special time. Each of our CC’s received a PHE Star Award at the celebration dinner. They are: Michelle Smith, Siva Subramanian, Paige Clabby, Jason Shaffer, Sarah Grimmett.
Congratulations CC’s, and thank you for your remarkable leadership and service!
