18th Annual Making a Difference Gala
April 26, 2023
Greater Lawrence Family Health Center (GLFHC) presented The Arbella Insurance Foundation with its highest honor during the 18th Annual Making a Difference Gala on April 26 at Andover Country Club.
The foundation has been a steady and strong supporter of GLFHC for many years, and during the pandemic stepped up its support to make sure the health center was able to first test and then vaccinate not only patients, but any Massachusetts resident in need. In addition, Arbella has assisted GLFHC in caring for homeless patients, and with renovations to its largest site so as to expand the Lawrence Family Medicine Residency program. The health center is now able to train 48 primary care physicians in its four-year program, at a time when there is a shortage of primary care doctors.
“We are eternally grateful for their partnership in helping us provide quality healthcare to some of the most vulnerable populations in the Merrimack Valley,” said Guy L. Fish, MD, MBA, President & CEO of GLFHC. “GLFHC is honored to present The Arbella Insurance Foundation with our Making a Difference Award.”
The gala is GLFHC’s largest fundraiser of the year, raising more than $200,000 in support of the health center’s programs.
GLFHC also paid tribute to the hard work and dedication of 17 employees, including staff in the Information Services, Medical, and Nursing departments.
Arbella Insurance serves Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Connecticut and Rhode Island.
