Our own director and founder David Scondras once upon a time was one of the core community leaders who founded and created the original Fenway Community Health Center on Huntington Avenue in the Boston Center for Older American's Office, and was recently interviewed for a book on the history of the Health Center.
Obviously the Health Center has grown far beyond those days and it is great that now top medical experts are running their research and care divisions and still providing support for the work and forsight that Mr. Sondras has become known for as community voice and activist.

Jonas Salk was an inspiration to a generation of young scientists and physicians, the institution bearing his name and the work of his sons all on their own still inspire confidence in the Salk brand.
We are honored to share the same ideals and be going in the same direction as such a family and equally honored to have received a letter of support in our work from the Salk Legacy Foundation.

Of course, our efforts would not have as much weight had we not had the good fortune to pair and work with a noble and rising star in the commonwealth, the state representative from Medford and Somerville, Congressman Carl Sciortino Jr.
Carl supported our efforts from the beginning, and in that partnership we were able to form the now real state bill for a commission to modernize HIV prevention before the house health committee of which Carl is presently as of 2011 a member of. His original letter supporting our work is availabe for download below. While state bill H2908 is still hopefully the culmination of these two years of outreach and education.
