Community health center dentist honored

Dr. Steve Colchamiro, dental director at Brookside Community Health Center, which is part of Brigham and Women's Hospital, has won this year's Founder's Award from the Massachusetts League of Community Health Centers.

The award honors a leader who protects and promotes healthcare access as a right for all, the community health center said in a statement. In 1971, Colchamiro established the School Dental Transportation Program, which has bused thousands of students from Boston public schools to Brookside for oral health services, often for their first visit to the dentist.
