Makin’ It Happen was awarded the  Friend of Public Health Award by the New Hampshire Public Health Association   This award is presented to a person or to a group who has been instrumental in practicing and/or promoting public health in the state. Almost 100 people joined NHPHA  for their  2021 Annual Meeting  to celebrate Makin’ It Happen and other awardees! 

Executive Director Mary Forsythe-Taber says “it’s been an incredible ten years of learning, growing, expanding, and rethinking prevention and how to help build healthy, thriving communities”.  The Makin’ It Happen is excited to continue to build resiliency in our youth, families, and communities. Our team believes strongly that: Behavioral and Physical Health are Essential, Prevention Works!, Treatment is Effective, and People Recover.

We would like to thank the New Hampshire Public Health Association for this honor and express our gratitude for the work they do across the state. We look forward to seeing what the future will bring!
