"I have known Dennis Mahoney for over ten years. I first met him in 1994 when he was working with the Massachusetts League of Community Health Centers in Boston under a contact with the Massachusetts Tobacco Control Program. I was working under a Tobacco Treatment contract at Falmouth Hospital, Falmouth Massachusetts – Cape Cod. Dennis was instrumental in helping me set up this program. He was always available by phone or for a visit at moment’s notice. His knowledge and expertise in the field was invaluable. As the contracts changed over the years, as well as our positions, Dennis was always in a position of helping me. Whether it was a clinical training or systems implementation, Dennis has always delivered on time and with vigor. Dennis has also mentored myself in starting and promoting my own healthcare training and speaking business".
