The Friends of Brookline Public Health are thrilled to announce the recipients of two prestigious awards – the Alan Balsam Public Health Leadership Award and the Herb Carlin Community Health Award. These awards will be presented at an upcoming meeting on Nov. 29, where guests can expect a panel presentation and dynamic discussion with local experts in the field about the intersection of AI, Public Health, and Brookline.
The Alan Balsam Public Health Leadership Award will go to Lawrence “Larry” Madoff, MD, Medical Director, Bureau of Infectious Disease and Laboratory Sciences, Massachusetts Department of Public Health, as well as the staff of the Brookline Department of Public Health. This award recognizes individuals who have demonstrated exceptional leadership in public health both locally and nationally during the COVID-19 pandemic.
On the other hand, the Herb Carlin Community Health Award will be presented to Brookline Thrives, a community organization addressing food insecurity in Brookline, and Bonnie Bastien who launched Mutual Aid Brookline during the pandemic. This award honors organizations or individuals who have made remarkable contributions to public health in Brookline.
