An important partnership

The Friedman School gratefully acknowledges ongoing support from John Hancock Financial Services, Inc. Tufts University and John Hancock have had a long-term partnership focused on obesity prevention activities as well as research and programs that promote good nutrition and physical activity.  One example of this partnership is the Tufts Marathon Challenge.
