For the Health of Our Communities

The Coalition for a Healthy Greater Worcester has partnered with the City of Worcester Division of Public Health and other  partners on an exciting new project funded by the Centers for Disease Control Racial and Ethnic Approaches to Community Health (CDC REACH) program. This is a 5 year project seeking to address health inequities impacting the health of the Latino/Latinx community in Worcester. With an overarching goal of health equity, the REACH project values the community’s experiences and expertise.
