BBH’s Executive Director, Susan Gittelman has been appointed to the Determination of Need’s (DON) Community Health Initiative (CHI) Healthy Aging Fund Advisory Committee. The purpose of this committee is to assist the Massachusetts Department of Public Health (MDPH) and Executive Office of Elder Affairs (EOEA) with setting the funding priorities for the CHI Healthy Aging Fund.
The CHI Healthy Aging Fund is a statewide effort to support the development of age-friendly communities and enables older adults to remain active, independent, and involved in their community. The advisory committee will provide strategic recommendations to ensure that the fund supports efforts that make it easier for older adults to live in healthy, inclusive and equitable environments.
We are confident that Susan’s passion, expertise, and perspective are critical to making the efforts of this committee successful. Please join us in congratulating her!
