JCHE's Barbara Friedman honored by community partners
Posted: June 15, 2011
Barbara Friedman brought intergenerational programming to JCHE 11 years ago. Since then, the organization has offered over 200 programs to bring JCHE residents and young people together. Under Barbara's direction, the programs have brought residents together with preschoolers to medical students. Participants have developed meaningful relationships among generations while changing perceptions and challenging stereotypes, Our partners are a wonderfully diverse group including the JCC, the former Lucy Stone School in Boston, the Everett School in Dorchester, Brandeis University, Temple Reyim, Tufts Medical School. We are delighted that the programs will continue to thrive under the direction of Jessica Hamermesh who has worked closely with Barbara for several years.
