Meeting the needs of our community in an emergency:
the value of a strong chc-public health relationship
Public health and community health centers (CHCs) must work together to protect, preserve, and promote the health of our communities in emergencies. In the City of Boston, public health and community health centers have a strong, successful history of collaboration responding to emergencies and supporting the community health recovery needs of the public. The Massachusetts League of CHCs and the Boston Public Health Commission have a strong history of partnership, emergency operations, and recommendations for future CHC and public health collaboration.
