Local public health workers make sure we don’t get food poisoning at restaurants, get sick from swimming in the local town pool, or drink contaminated water. They also respond to cases of communicable disease like #COVID19. So why do some small towns in #MA lack any public health staff at all? This system needs reform!

Today we gathered to advocate for 5% investment of ARPA funding to strengthen our local public health system. We cannot make the LPH system efficient, effective or equitable without implementing the Special Commission on LPH blueprint. If not now, in aftermath of pandemic, when?

Happening Now! Join live as our legislative champions, @MAPublicHealth & other #publichealth professionals/advocates give testimony to support an infusion of federal funding to transform #MA's dangerously inadequate local public health system.
