Three Boston groups recognized with mayoral prize for primary care advances

To a gathering of local community health leaders this week, Mayor Thomas M. Menino confessed a boyhood dream of becoming executive director of the Boston Public Health Commission. He wanted to make a difference in peoples’ lives, he said.

Instead, he helped shape that office’s work during two decades as mayor. His legacy will continue in part through the Mayoral Prize for Innovations in Primary Care, an annual award that his office helped create to recognize organizations testing new ways to meet the health care needs of the city.
