The meeting will be held at the Ruth Anne Bleakney Senior Center (located at 60 N. Bow St., Milford, MA 01757) from 9-11 AM. The Steering Committee has met over the summer and are excited to share updates on the Community Health Needs Assessment, grant report updates and to learn what everyone else has been up to over the summer! In addition to our normal networking, we will continue this year with starting each meeting with a "moment of request" where members can reach out to the group for any help or resources they may need!


We will also be having special presentations on the following topics:

  • Health Equity:
    • Sabrina Selk, Deputy Director, Office of Health Equity, Massachusetts Department of Public Health
  • The Dangers of Vaping:

Hope to see you there! 

Community Health Assessment: Beginning in October 2017, Milford Regional Medical Center (MRMC) undertook a major review and revision of the 2015 CHA to evaluate the health needs of individuals living in its twenty-town service area in Massachusetts. The assessment examined a variety of health indicators, focusing on mental health/substance abuse, senior support issues, access to care, and overweight/obesity. The resulting document is the the 2018 Community Health Needs Assessment (2018 CHNA).

Resources and Events: Our monthly newsletter will also help connect you to valuable resources and events in the area. Please send all items you would like to be added to our newsletter to  Check out this months events and resources:
