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 8, 2017.
The center recognized Andrew for several accomplishments. 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.
The Building a Better Boston Award Breakfast is one of three annual signature events celebrating the impact of collaborative leadership.
