Who We Are

MPHA is a private, non-profit, statewide membership organization that promotes a healthy Massachusetts through advocacy, education, community organizing, and coalition-building.

Take Action!

We invite all of our local, regional, and statewide allies to sign on to this letter calling for re-authorization of the PWTF– the first-in-the-nation effort of its kind launched in 2012 after a hard fought effort by MPHA and many allies. Funding for PWTF sunsets in June 2017 unless there is further legislative action.

Join MPHA

MPHA’s power is its members, volunteers, and coalition partners! Your voice and your involvement is essential to creating a healthy Massachusetts.
