The Health Foundation of Central Massachusetts elected several new community members to serve on its board committees and help advance its mission of improving the health of residents throughout the region.

Donna L. Boulanger, President & CEO of North Brookfield Savings Bank, was elected to a three-year term on the Audit Committee, Keith Kirkland, Vice President of Commercial Lending & Services at Southbridge Savings Bank, will serve on the Investment Committee, and Evelyn Velez, South County Head Start Program at Worcester Community Action Council, and Shelley Yarnie, Regional Director of the MDPH Central Regional Health Office, will join the Community Outreach Committee.

In addition, Derek Brindisi, Director of the Division of Public Health for the City of Worcester, Emily MacRae, Consultant and Owner of Emily MacRae Enterprises, and Barbara Nealon, Director of Social Work & Multicultural Services at Heywood Hospital were all elected to their second three-year terms on the Community Outreach Committee. David Grenier, Managing Member and Portfolio Manager of Cutler Capital Management, was elected to his third and final three-year term as a Community Member on the Investment Committee.

Established in 1999, the Health Foundation has awarded grants totaling more than $25 million and recently announced the opening of its 2013 Activation Fund grants to aid local organizations in their efforts to improve health and well-being across Central Mass. The Health Foundation has designated roughly $350,000 for one round of Activation Fund projects this year. Previous awards have ranged from $10,000 to a little more than $100,000, with the average grant totaling $50,000. In 2012, Activation Fund grants supported projects that ranged from promoting green and healthy homes to addressing the skills gap in the workforce to reducing depression among elders in the Latino community.
