You Get Public Health

You “get” public health.

You believe, as we do, that health should not be determined by zip code, skin color, or socio-economic status. You know that health is about social justice, opportunity, and the conditions of people’s daily lives.

Because of your past support and partnership, the Massachusetts Public Health Association is firmly established as the Commonwealth’s leading voice for high-impact policy solutions that address these critical social determinants of health.

Please make a donation today so that we can continue this crucial work and maintain our momentum.

Thanks to your support, we have had tremendous victories in recent years. With your help, we created the first-in-the-nation Prevention and Wellness Trust and improved school nutrition for 1 million kids.

With your help, we:

  • Increased core state public health funding by millions of dollars and bolstered essential public health protections that we all rely on every day.
  • Won major increases in transportation funding to support better public transit, walking, and biking – improving public health and addressing a core driver of health inequity.
  • Moved legislation to support new grocery stores in underserved urban and rural areas.
Perhaps most importantly of all, with your help, we supported local leaders in every corner of the state to become stronger, more skilled advocates – and connected them to work together as a powerful force for change.

We know there is so much more to be done.

That’s why we’re about to launch a new effort to ensure that public health is hardwired to the next phase of Massachusetts health reform. As major change takes place in the way that health care services are delivered and paid for, MPHA will be there to ensure that public health is a key part of the equation.

With your renewed support this year, MPHA will be at the forefront of public health policies that make our shared vision a reality.

Please check out our 2013 Annual Report to see all that we’ve accomplished together this year, and please give as generously as possible to continue this work.

To give over the phone please contact Kara Keenan at (857) 263-7072 x113.

On behalf of our hard-working and dedicated team, thank you.
Sincerely,
Steven F. Bradley
