Important message from the Partnership
Effective July 1, 2012, the Partnership for a Heart-Healthy, Stroke-Free Massachusetts will align resources, personnel, and volunteer leadership with the new Massachusetts coordinated chronic disease prevention coalition. This initiative will foster 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 may be strengthened.
Accordingly, the Partnership will suspend its current activities as of July 1, 2012. Updates on the status of the Partnership will be posted on this website.
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, and sign up to participate, here: MA Coordinated Health Promotion and Chronic Disease Prevention Plan.
