MPHA congratulates the New Bedford Health Department for its national recognition as a leader in public health at last month’s APHA Annual Meeting & Conference. New Bedford is one of six health departments in the nation to be featured in a documentary that was shared with thousands at this year’s APHA meeting. The New Bedford documentary clip is now available on YouTube and highlights the community’s many initiatives to advance public health. Less than a year since receiving a seed grant of $250,000 from the Prevention & Wellness Trust Fund, New Bedford and its partners have done great things like establishing a dental clinic for the community and being a “thought leader” in many other areas of public health. Great work, New Bedford!
