6th Annual NSHP Community Health Activist Award is being awarded in June to Gloucester Police Chief Leonard Campanello

Greetings from the North Shore Health Project!

May is shaping up to be a very exciting month for the NSHP and for Gloucester !

We are pleased to announce that the 6th Annual NSHP Community Health Activist Award is being awarded in June to Gloucester Police Chief Leonard Campanello, John Rosenthal and the PAARI Initiative for their work in developing the Angel Program, a revolutionary new way to fight the war on drugs by doing something about the demand, not just the supply.

This is, of course, after Chief Campanello is honored TODAY as a “Champion of Change” by President Obama at the White House for his tireless work helping law enforcement officers around the country to take a stand against the disease of addiction.

Please join us as we celebrate the crucial work that is being done by PAARI on Thursday morning, June 2nd, 2016, at the Gloucester House on Rogers Street in Gloucester . Breakfast will be served at 7:30 a.m. with remarks from local officials, colleagues and others. The program will conclude by 9 a.m.

Admission to the breakfast is $30, and you may make reservations by calling 978-283-0101 or emailing scoviello@healthproject.org. You can also make a reservation and payment via mail to The North Shore Health Project, 5 Center Street , Gloucester , MA , 01930 . There will be a limited number of seats available on the day of the celebration, but please RSVP by May 20 so that we can have an accurate head count.
