Whittier Street Health Center received a Tufts Health Plan Quality Innovation Award in recognition of its Connections for Cardiovascular Health Ambassador Program, an initiative that has brought greater heart disease awareness and access to care to African American and Latino residents of Boston. Tufts Health Plan created these awards last year to acknowledge local health organizations for their commitment to improving and advancing health care quality through innovation.
