A provider of professional massage therapy and spa body-care products has announced the launch of its 2011 program to acknowledge massage schools that perform community outreach.

BIOTONE’s 2011 Edu-Partner Community Outreach Award Program, now in its fifth year, will award two massage schools one $2,500 grant apiece for their community outreach programs conducted during the year. (BIOTONE’s founder and CEO, Jean Shea, is on MASSAGE Magazine’s editorial advisory board.)

In making the award, BIOTONE representatives evaluate a program’s impact on the community, benefits to recipients and ability to meet stated goals.
