BOSTON – The Boston Public Health Commission, in partnership with Hyde Park Community Resources (HPCR), invites Hyde Park residents, health care providers, and other interested residents to a community health meeting. The meeting will be held on Saturday, October 1, from 11am to 2pm at the Hyde Park Community Center (Muni Building), 1179 River Street.
The second in a series of citywide health forums this year, the Hyde Park meeting is a platform for people living and working in the community to discuss health issues specific to the neighborhood. Participants will learn about findings of the latest Health of Boston report and key health issues affecting their neighborhood, and most importantly, discuss what they can do to improve the health of local residents. The Commission and HPCR are interested in working collaboratively with residents, businesses, community agencies, faith-based organization, elected officials, and others to develop creative ideas that will help build a stronger, healthier Hyde Park.
“This event presents a wonderful opportunity for the community to come together to not only learn more about the issues affecting their community, but also to brainstorm new ways to address health challenges,” said Dr. Barbara Ferrer, executive director of the Boston Public Health Commission. “Everyone has a role to play in making our neighborhoods – and our city – healthier.”
