We are pleased to offer the sixth installment of our Spotlight series to highlight MPHA partners across the state who are changing lives and communities to improve health and advance health equity. Previously we showcased the work of Partners for a Healthier Community in Springfield, the Worcester Food & Active Living Policy Council, the Greater Lowell Health Alliance, the Montachusett Opportunity Council, and Transportation for Massachusetts.
This month we have turned the spotlight to YOU! Our members are our most valuable partners and bring light to the work being done in all corners of the Commonwealth to improve public health. We want to hear from you! Tell us what your policy priorities are. The MPHA policy committee will be meeting in September to decide which social determinants of health we will tackle next. So tell us, which issues matter the most to you?
Email your evaluation of our 2014 policy priorities (and related successes! Think: State Budget Advocacy, Healthy Food Financing, Complete Streets Certification Program, and more!) as well as your thoughts on which policy issues we should take on next to firstname.lastname@example.org. All opinions submitted will be for internal discussion only. Your thoughts will not be made public. We appreciate your participation!
