Healthy S.F. is Harvard innovations award finalist
San Francisco Chronicle

In a political era in which government is often blamed as a problem rather than a solution, Harvard University’s Innovations in American Government Awards hopes to show the converse can be true. And one of its six finalists – out of 563 applicants from around the country – is Healthy San Francisco. The city’s first-of-its-kind universal health care program is up against New York City’s NYC Service, which connects volunteers with service opportunities; a separate New York City antipoverty program; Littleton, Colo.’s home-grown business program; a job creation program in Oregon; and an apprenticeship program for Boston teachers.
