The RWJF 2016 County Health Rankings are out! Coalitions and community health stakeholders across the state will find useful information and actions in the interactive report. MA DPH encourages you to share this information with others in your community and to use these data and other data sources in community health assessment and planning.
This March, over 75 members of coalitions and others have joined us for our Health Equity Training Series -- and the conversation continues. On May 21 our new webinar, Health Equity in Action: Taking the Next Steps, will follow up by going deeper into the practical application of equity practices.
"Getting a municipal policy enacted can be a slow slog, but along the way you learn a lot about your community and its people and you're also part of a campaign that institutionalizes true, long-lasting change to improve public health," says D.J. Wilson, of the MA Municipal Association.
