Jeffrey Sanchez and City Councilor Mike Ross (second and third from left) hold plaques dedicating training rooms to them in the Longwood Medical Area’s Center for Life Sciences on June 13. Ross and Sanchez proposed the one-of-a-kind facility several years ago when the research lab tower at 3 Blackfan Circle was first proposed. Used by such groups as Sociedad Latina, the facility provides medical job training to Mission Hill and Fenway residents. Also pictured (from left) are three Sociedad Latina health program interns—Franklyn Vasquez, Luilli Guzman and Ana Vargas—and Constance Doty, Executive Director of the Mayor’s Office of Jobs and Community Service, who oversees the facility.
