Who We Are
Healthier Middlesex is a diverse, multi-sector, community-focused consortium comprised of a wide variety of stakeholders including community-based organizations, academic institutions, and health departments. We believe in the transformative power of collaboration. Through our partnership, we are able to provide our community with the best programs and policies available. Healthier Middlesex constantly strives to develop more effective strategies to positively impact the health of the community. We are focused on identifying the strengths and opportunities within the community, aligning the efforts and resources of our partners, while developing structured and sustainable strategies that integrate health and wellness into all aspects of our community.
We currently serve approximately 900,000 members, whose diversity of backgrounds, experiences, and beliefs make them among the most culturally rich and unique populations in the state. Among the hallmarks of our work is cooperation and recognition of the unique story of every member of the community. By working together we can create a healthy, safe and supportive community for all.
