Important message from the Partnership
The Partnership for a Heart-Healthy, Stroke-Free Massachusetts will be dissolved effective January 1, 2014. Its resources, personnel, and volunteer leadership have aligned with the new Massachusetts Partnership for Health Promotion and Chronic Disease Prevention. This initiative fosters a coordinated public health approach to reducing chronic diseases broadly (including heart disease and stroke) in the Commonwealth, consistent with the new federal public health funding. By joining forces with the new statewide coalition, the resources and opportunities for achieving the Partnership's goals are strengthened.
We thank our Partners for their support and good work in preventing and managing heart disease and stroke throughout the Commonwealth. To continue working toward our shared goals, we encourage you to consider joining the new coordinated chronic disease coalition and specifically joining one of the seven Communities of Practice. Participating in a Community of Practice will continue the work you have been doing in the Partnership and increase your impact on improving health in Massachusetts. You can download a brief overview of the Massachusetts Coordinated Health Promotion and Chronic Disease Prevention Plan and the seven Communities of Practice here: MA Coordinated Health Promotion and Chronic Disease Prevention Plan.
