    The U.S. Mayors Conference awarded the "Best Practice" award to the San Juan municipal government for its program "Better Health Alliance," San Juan Mayor Jorge Santini said Sunday.

    "This is a distinction received by our city that demonstrates our energy, assertiveness, and effectiveness in the development of health programs," the mayor said in a press release.

    He indicated that the U.S. Mayors Conference groups the mayors of cities with more than 30,000 citizens in the United States. The organization is presided over by Boston Mayor Thomas Menino.

    A committee of the conference selected the designation of "Best Practice" and who evaluated the innovative programs that the mayors created and developed in their communities, he said.

    According to Santini, the programs should demonstrate their effectiveness with the interest that other U.S. mayors develop similar projects in their respective cities.
