Andrew Dreyfus Honored with Building a Better Boston Award

The UMass Boston Center for Collaborative Leadership honored Andrew Dreyfus, president and CEO of Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts with the Building a Better Boston award on November 8th.

The center recognized Andrew for several accomplishments. Notedly he:

  • collaborated with health care, business, labor, and government leaders to develop the “Roadmap to Coverage,” which was instrumental in the passing of the state’s landmark 2006 Health Reform Law;
  • is a founding member of the Massachusetts Coalition for Serious Illness Care, which brings together individuals and organizations committed to systematically improving care for serious illness;
  • advocates for bipartisanship in improving the Affordable Care Act;
  • is working to stem the tide of opioid addiction in Massachusetts; and
  • serves on a number of boards in service to the the organizations and the community.

All this and more makes Andrew Dreyfus more than deserving of the center’s Building a Better Boston Award.

Thank you to our sponsors!
