UMMS Community Health Toolkit




Including a population perspective when considering health problems can be key to understanding what's happening in your clinic. 

Our department is happy to be working with the Worcester Department of Public Health to implement and evaluate the Worcester Community Health Improvement Plan, which provides objectives and strategies in nine key areas to move the city toward its goal of becoming the healthiest city in New England by 2020.  The full plan can be accessed at the Worcester Department of Public Health website. 

Priority Area 1:  Racism & Discrimination
Priority Area 2:  Substance Use
iority Area 3:  Access to Care
Priority Area 4:  Mental Health
Priority Area 5:  Economic Opportunity
Priority Area 6:  Cultural Responsiveness
Priority Area 7:  Access to Healthy Food
Priority Area 8:  Physical Activity
Priority Area 9:  Safety


The vision of making the Greater Worcester region the healthiest in New England by 2020 is a huge undertaking, but with your help and commitment we can succeed!  

The goals of this toolkit are to:

> Provide access to high-quality population health data and measurement tools
> Link providers to population-based and community resources

This is YOUR TOOLKIT - and a work in progress. If you have ideas to improve this site and make it more useful, please contact Heather-Lyn Haley, Project Manager for Community Health, via email or at 774-441-6366.
