Triangle Celebrates 50 Years of Serving the Disability Community 

  MALDEN — On Thursday, April 28 at the John F. Kennedy Library and Museum, Triangle, Inc., will celebrate its 50th Anniversary of serving the disability community. The 50th Anniversary Founders Award will be presented to Dr. Philip Conti. As one of the founders of the organization, Dr. Conti was instrumental in creating an empowering, safe, and loving community in the “Triangle” of Everett, Malden, and Medford in the early 1970s. He remained involved with the organization for many decades and helped nurture the growth and evolution of Triangle programs.

  Dr. Philip B. Conti is the Clinical Director & General Dentist at Maplewood Dental Associates in Malden, MA. He was born in Everett, Massachusetts, and raised in Malden, Massachusetts. He is a graduate of Malden High School and attended Brandeis University. He graduated with a bachelor’s in biology and simultaneously attended the New England Conservatory of Music (special voice student) and Tufts University School of Dental Medicine, achieving his Doctor of Dental Medicine degree. Dr. Conti worked at the Cancer Research Department at Tufts Medical Center from 1958 to 1962 as a biologist, screening steroids on a National Institute of Health Grant and co-authored many research publications.

  This year’s event will return to JFK Library and Museum for Triangle’s first in-person awards ceremony and fundraiser since 2019. On this landmark year in the organization’s history, Triangle Inc. is thrilled to celebrate the accomplishments of the thousands of Triangle participants who have been a part of its community since the 1970s, while also looking forward to highlighting exciting new programs that will allow the organization to grow, evolve, and thrive in the decades to come.

  In its 50 years, Triangle has since grown into one of the leading disability services agencies in the Commonwealth with multiple locations in Malden, a recently expanded site in Salem, a downtown location in Randolph, and a Boston office that is home to the service-learning and abuse prevention programs. Each year, Triangle reaches 4,000 people with disabilities from more than 100 cities and towns and continues to improve and diversify programs and services to better meet the evolving needs of the disability community.
