Massachusetts Partnership for Health Promotion and Chronic Disease Prevention
A statewide coordinated chronic disease coalition
Chronic Disease Prevention supports change that creates and sustains healthy environments where people live, work and play. Healthy environments make it easier for people without chronic disease to lower their risk for developing these conditions and for people with chronic disease to manage them. It also works to identify root causes for chronic disease and address inequities so that all Massachusetts residents reach their full potential to live long and live well. This initiative fosters a coordinated public health approach to reducing chronic diseases broadly in the Commonwealth.
