Massachusetts Medical Society: Massachusetts Medical Society recognizes National Public Health Week

Massachusetts Medical Society recognizes National Public Health Week

In observance of National Public Health Week, the physicians of the Massachusetts Medical Society thank our colleagues in public health for their dedicated service and leadership at the local, state, and national level.

The Medical Society has long enjoyed a valuable, strong, and close relationship with our partners in public health, and their support and collaboration has never been more critical than it has during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Throughout the pandemic the public health workforce has been unwavering and successful in providing guidance and actions to mitigate the devastating effects of the virus. This tireless work came on top of their leadership to assure clean water and air, provide vaccines against myriad pathogens, protect our children from addiction to nicotine, tackle a mental health crisis and the explosion of substance use, and address racial disparities in health.

We often take our public health infrastructure and public health servants for granted. National Public Health Week affords us the opportunity to reflect on how essential this work is to the health of our communities and to acknowledge the constant contributions of our colleagues in the field.

-Carole E. Allen, MD, MBA, FAAP, President, Massachusetts Medical Society
