Clinic news

The East Boston Neighborhood Health Center is receiving a $12 million federal grant "for construction projects and technology upgrades," according to The money is part of $80 million in stimulus funds that are being awarded to eight community health centers in Massachusetts.

Also in the news, Dr. Peter Stringham, who worked as a pediatric and adolescent physician at the EBNHC for 32 years, will receive the Public Health Leadership Award in Brookline on Dec. 16. Stringham was an institution at what I grew up calling "the clinic," and when I was a teenager he was my doctor.

Sounds like great news Jimbo. Hopefully this will help spark some good investment in the neighborhood and a substantial construction project.
