Healthcare leader to be honored

Jennifer Hanlon WigonWellesley’s Jennifer Hanlon Wigon will be among those honored next month at the Boston Business Journal‘s Innovators in Healthcare event.

Hanlon Wigon serves as executive director of Women’s Lunch Place, where she is charged with improving the safety, health, wellness, self-sufficiency, and stability of women experiencing homelessness, hunger, and poverty. Hanlon Wigon started the job just a few months before the COVID-19 pandemic broke out, and since then she and her staff have revamped and significantly expanded the organization’s service model.

In submitting its Innovators in Healthcare application for Hanlon Wigon, Women’s Lunch Place shared that “Jennifer has a keen focus on advancing equity in opioid use disorder treatment, as many WLP guests––71% of whom are women of color––suffer from substance use disorders and lack access to care and sobriety support. Under her leadership, WLP has expanded its wraparound addiction recovery services––peer support, mental health services, nutrition, medical care, therapeutic expression, and life skills as catalysts for sobriety.”

J. Todd Galleries online

Those of you who have been in town for at least a few years might recall the colorful storefront of J. Todd Gallery at 572 Washington St. The gallery closed that shop as the pandemic took hold, but owner Mona Kumar reached out to us recently to make sure people are aware the business has continued to operate online as J. Todd Galleries and serves clients in Wellesley and well beyond.

Among the artists whose work is available via J. Todd is Anne Lyman Powers, who we profiled on our site last year.
