It is with great sadness that MAHPERD announces the loss of Past President (1988) Bill Considine. We remember Bill as a true gentleman and a wonderful advocate and educator for the allied professions. He was a dynamic leader for our association and one of the reasons why it flourishes today. Bill passed away on Friday, March 26, 2021. Our prayers and thoughts go out to his family and to Springfield College community.


Jeffrey Bartett - Holten Richmond Middle School (Danvers, MA) has been selected as the 2021 SHAPE America Eastern District Health Education Teacher of the Year!

Congratulations to Jeff on this very well deserved honor and recognition!
