Samantha Morton is stepping down as MLPB’s CEO this year, a decision she has made in connection with new elder caregiving responsibilities. During her tenure, MLPB’s capacity-building reach in Massachusetts and Rhode Island has broadened and deepened through its team-facing legal partnering innovation – equipping medically- and community-based care teams with legal information and tools that promote more effective problem-solving with the people they serve.

“Samantha’s human-centeredness and astute read of the evolving healthcare ecosystem have been transformative for the organization, our partners and collaborators, and the social health field,” says Kirsten Meisinger, former Medical Staff President and Regional Medical Director at Cambridge Health Alliance and MLPB Advisory Board member. “Our partnership with MLPB, under Samantha’s visionary and enthusiastic leadership, has helped us to expand our social health strategy and programming,” notes Kim Prendergast, Senior Director, Social Health – Community Care Cooperative.
