“Fighting the Opioid Crisis” in the Merrimack Valley is the theme of the 11th annual “Making A Difference” fundraiser, benefitting Greater Lawrence Family Health Center on April 20, 2017 at the Andover Country Club.

“Fighting the opioid crisis is not as simple as treatment and recovery,” states John Silva, GLFHC President and Chief Executive Officer.  “The goal of this year’s fundraiser is to highlight and address the needs to get someone through treatment and recovery, such as expansion of behavioral health services, staff training and community outreach.”

Rosanne DiStefano has tirelessly served as Executive Director of Elder Services of the Merrimack Valley since 1985 and has a career in elder care for more than 40 years.  During her tenure, DiStefano’s accomplishments have included three affordable supportive housing sites for elders in the Merrimack Valley.  “Rosanne and ESMV have been a partner of GLFHC since our inception in 1980 by helping to bridge the healthcare divide between primary care and elder services for our older patients,” according to Silva.  “Her efforts to not only expand services, but collaborating with organizations like GLFHC in the Merrimack Valley for the betterment of its residents has truly made a difference to our patients and the elder population throughout Greater Lawrence and beyond.”

Greater Lawrence Family Health Center (GLFHC) is the largest, independent community health center in Massachusetts, serving more than 60,000 patients annually at six clinical sites in Lawrence and Methuen.  The mission of GLFHC is to improve and maintain the health of individuals and families in the Merrimack Valley by providing a network of high quality, comprehensive health care services and by training health care professionals to respond to the needs of a culturally diverse population.
