Special Women’s Health Edition

In late 2017, along with the Cambridge Health Alliance, we released our joint Wellbeing of Somerville Report. The report provides an overview of the health of city residents across the life stages from the womb to old age. The data is not only fascinating—and in some cases eye opening—it provides an informed launching pad for our coming community-wide dialogue about resident health and the steps we want to take to improve it. Taking cues from our SomerVision process, we’re hoping to tap into the well of creative and compassionate thinking we know this community is capable of to chart a path forward that will benefit us all. In short, we’ll be asking you to help develop a comprehensive Community Health Improvement Plan. Women’s health will most certainly be a key area of discussion.
