Today, the Boston Board of Health will announce a new collaboration that will connect residents with more than 20,000 health services. The board will also hear updates on the City's engagement center pilot.
General discussion will be led by BPHC Executive Director Monica Valdes Lupi, JD, MPH, and will include updates on the three commission-wide priorities: treating and preventing opioid use, strengthening partnerships with health care, and advancing health equity.
There will also be a presentation on the engagement center pilot, a new welcoming environment for individuals in need of a space to spend time during the day, and get connected to the many housing and recovery services offered by the City of Boston and partners in the Newmarket Square area.
BPHC will be live streaming the meeting on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/HealthyBoston/
