North Shore Health Project 30th Anniversary

Last night at the Beauport Hotel, the North Shore Health Project presented their 10th Annual Health Activist Award to Governor Charlie Baker.

The Health Project is celebrating it’s 30th anniversary this year and they wanted to recognize the efforts that Governor Baker has made to put our state in a leadership role of fighting the opioid and heroin epidemic. We have , doubled spending on prevention, education, treatment, and recovery and he has signed two major bills that have served as models for other states. The Health Project continues to be a vital service agency for the Cape Ann area and greater Essex County.

The program included presentations by Representative Ann Margaret Ferrante, Gloucester Mayor Sefatia Romeo Theken and me. Congratulations Governor.
