Due to the difficult financial times we face, the Department of Public Health has suffered tremendous cuts to its budget and is expecting more in the next few weeks. Public Health programs prevent illness and disease and serve our most vulnerable residents, including people with HIV/AIDS, children, elders and those who are low-income.
A coalition of Public Health programs called United We Stand for Public Health is holding a press conference this Thursday, Jan 22 nd, at 1pm, at the State House to urge the Commonwealth to protect public health. Please join us as we stand up for Public Health and protect these programs from further cuts!For more information about how to participate, please contact Deb Fournier firstname.lastname@example.org
