Resources for Support
Community & Youth Assessments
Education & Public Health Training
In an effort to help strengthen and build public health capabilities in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, the Special Commission on Local and Regional Public Health (OLRH) produced a Blue Print for Public Health Excellence in June of 2019.
The OLRH manages the Public Health Excellence Grant, which in July 2021, funded the Eastern Essex Regional Public Health Coalition (EERPHC), a coalition for the towns of Hamilton, Wenham, Essex and Rockport.
The EERPHC has since hired a full time Public Health Nurse and a full time Public Health Social Worker to address the needs of the communities served.
