Action for Boston Community Development will host its 2023 Community Heroes Celebration on Friday – an event honoring 18 people who are making a real and positive impact in the Greater Boston area.
The heroes come from diverse professions and backgrounds – including educators, health care professionals, artists, nonprofit leaders, and parents. But they are all behind the same cause of helping those who need it most.
Kathy Lituri is one of the 18 heroes.
Lituri is a dental hygienist and faculty member at Boston University Goldman School of Medicine, where she leads outreach programs. One of these outreach programs is ABCD, which Lituri and her team work with to ensure children in the local Head Start program have access to the dental care they need.
