Jim was selected for the prestigious Dr. Leon A. Bradley Award at the 2021 Yankee Conference! The Bradley Award is a New England Regional NEHA affiliate award given by the Yankee Conference Board of Directors (YCBD). Each New England affiliate can nominate an individual from their state whom they deem worthy of this award. This special honor, established in 1971 by the YCBD may be awarded to only one recipient (if deemed worthy) each year. The award is presented at the Yankee Conference. Jim has been an active and dedicated MEHA member for many years and served as MEHA’s President from 2006-2008.
We would also like to congratulate Jim on his retirement! Jim joined the Natick Health Department in 1979, and has served as its director since 2009. We express our deepest gratitude to Jim for his leadership, enthusiasm, and dedication. We wish him happiness and relaxation in his retirement and look forward to keeping him engaged with MEHA!
