What do issues, such as access to sexual healthcare and rates of diabetes have to do with the racial or ethnic makeup of a neighborhood? ... How is youth violence an issue of public health? ... What does the health of JP look like across all of its neighborhoods and communities?
Join Boston Public Health Commission Executive Director, Barbara Ferrer, local community leaders, and your neighbors in exploring health (in)equities across JP and strategizing how we as a community can mobilize around addressing these issues.
JP is a vibrant and dynamic neighborhood, bubbling with activist communities of all backgrounds and interests. Let's capitalize on our energy to organize as one community to increase health equity for all of our neighbors!
