Margaret Fuller House Recognized as City of Cambridge Wins National Health Award

i Feb 22nd No Comments by

Cambridge, MA (February 22, 2013)– The Margaret Fuller Neighborhood House (MFNH) was thrilled to be recognized for its health programming and education efforts yesterday as the city of Cambridge received the Inaugural Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Roadmaps to Health Prize.

The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, the nation’s largest national philanthropy devoted to health and health care, awarded this prestigious prize to only six communities across the country.  Cambridge was chosen for its innovative, collaborative approach in the areas of healthy eating and physical activity; strengthening families; progressive urban planning; and integrating local public health within various City departments, community agencies and the Cambridge Health Alliance.

“We were extremely proud to stand beside city officials yesterday and present to a national audience the work that we’ve done together to build a healthy and strong Area IV community,” said Barbara Kibler, Executive Director.

Over the past several years, the Margaret Fuller Neighborhood House has worked closely with the Cambridge Public Health Department and with the guidance of the Men of Color Task Force to develop the Men’s Health League—a program addressing health disparities and access to Health care for over 500 men of color. We have also collaboratively designed and implemented diabetes support groups with the Cambridge Community Center and with the guidance of the Public Health Department. (more…)
