New commissioner wants to hear your thoughts on public health
By Stephen Smith, Globe Staff
The state's new public health commissioner later this month will embark on an eight-city tour of Massachusetts to take the pulse of citizens on health issues. Residents will have an opportunity to share their thoughts about what's most important -- and most needed --in the realm of public health with Commissioner John Auerbach, who will present data about important health concerns.
Auerbach's first stop on his Regional Health Dialogue will be in Worcester on May 30, with a meeting from 4 to 6 p.m. at the Quinsigamond Community College Hebert Auditorium, 670 W. Boylston St.
Subsequent sessions include:
Northeastern Massachusetts: 4 to 6 p.m. June 4 at Greater Lawrence Technical School, 57 River Road, Andover.
Southeastern Massachusetts: 9 to 11 a.m. June 7 at a location to be announced.
Cape Cod: 4 to 6 p.m. June 7 at Barnstable High School, 744 West Main St., Hyannis.
Berkshires: 5 to 7 p.m. June 13, 2007 at Ralph J. Froio Senior Center, main meeting room, second floor, 330 North St., Pittsfield.
Western Massachusetts: 4 to 6 p.m. June 14 at Springfield Technical Community College, Building 2 Theater, One Armory Square, Springfield.
Metrowest: 4 to 6 p.m. June 21 at the YMCA Hopkinton, 45 East St., Hopkinton.
Boston: 4 to 6 p.m. June 26 at the Boston Public Health Commission's Carter Auditorium, Fourth Floor, 35 Northampton St.
The state Department of Public Health said that the times and locations of each session are subject to change. Go to mass.gov/dph/comm/health_dialogues.htm for the latest on the Regional Health Dialogue.
