Retirement beckons to uber health agent
The Foxboro (Mass.) Reporter profiled George Young ’73, who is retiring as health agent in the town of Foxborough after 20 years. One of his colleagues, Board of Health chairman Eric Arvedon, was quoted in the story: “I have always regarded George as the uber-environmental health professional…. George is both a walking comprehensive environmental health reference manual and a patient professor. He seems to always know the answer or where to find it and then he is eager to pass along his knowledge to make sure the board and the Health Department understand the issues so that we can address the challenge du jour.”
