MHC’s Prevention message has never been more critical 4/2/2020
As we all know by now, the peak of the COVID-19 pandemic is in front of us. April is certain to be a difficult month and I want you to know the Massachusetts Health Council (MHC) is here connecting our health, business, civic, school and academic partners as deftly as possible to address growing need.
Please see what we are working on and reach out if we can assist your organization in any way. For those of you with middle and high school students, the Video Contest, below, is a great opportunity for young people to use their creativity during this unsettling time - share far and wide.
The Massachusetts Health Council was founded one-hundred years ago to work collaboratively on the tuberculosis epidemic and to assist soldiers returning home from WWI. We’re in this together and right now, MHC’s focus on prevention feels more important than ever. Stay healthy and safe.
