The MetroWest Health Foundation announced last week the election of Alan Geller and John Krikorian to its Board of Trustees. Both will serve three-year terms.
Geller is a Framingham resident and a senior lecturer and research scientist at the Harvard School of Public Health.
Krikorian, a Needham resident, is a physician at Charles River Medical Associates in Framingham, formerly serving as chief of medical oncology at MetroWest Medical Center. Krikorian has been a longtime member of the foundation’s distribution committee, the organization said.
Geller and Krikorian replace Henry Barr and Kevin Foley, both of Framingham, who retired from the board after serving a maximum of nine years each.
The organization also elected Dana Neshe, a Framingham resident, as the trustee board's chair. She is currently executive vice president for community banking and community relations at Middlesex Savings Bank.
Neshe said in a statement that Geller and Krikorian will bring expertise to the board.
“We are looking forward to their input as we work to establish new grantmaking priorities for the foundation,” she said.
In addition to Neshe, the foundation’s trustees elected Natick resident Joel Barrera, deputy director of the Metropolitan Area Planning Council, as vice-chair; Adam Rogers, also of Natick and a vice president and financial advisor with Credit Suisse, as treasurer; and Rosemarie Coelho, a social worker in private practice in Milford, as clerk of the board.
The foundation provides more than $4 million each year to local health programs, and has donated more than $37 million to date.
