"We have been hosting Law School for Social Workers for many years and this year we had an opportunity to reach an even wider audience by doing the event virtually," said Founder and Co-managing partner Harry S.

It can be very challenging and frustrating to navigate MassHealth. At M&B, we want to build collaboration with those that are caring for the elderly and disabled and empower them to do their job with efficacy and care."
