This year's recipients are a shining, example of this legacy.

Mark Souza Joins Manet CHC Board
The Manet Community Health Center Board of Directors recently inducted another representative from its Taunton service area. Mark Souza is a Taunton resident and is the director of AGP House of Taunton.
Mark became familiar with Manet through his work helping men in recovery regain their health and overcome addiction. Many of them have gone without primary care and Mark was thrilled when Manet opened in 2014.
"Manet has primary care, medication assisted treatment and behavioral health services all under one roof and this is really beneficial for our residents," he said. "It's all about trying to get our residents the services they need to enhance their sobriety, and I think having a good relationship with the providers and staff really helps with this. I am happy to do whatever I can to work together for the betterment of our community."
