Community health centers working with state
on Haiti relief efforts

1-20-10 Feature Story:

In response to the harrowing impact and long-term effects of last week's devastating earthquake in Haiti, community health centers from around the state are working to provide support to their Haitian patients and staff members, and to look for ways to assist state and federal efforts in bringing medical care and other relief to the people of Haiti.

The League has created a Haiti Disaster Resources webpage to provide updates on disaster relief efforts as well as ways in which to support humanitarian organizations working on the ground in Haiti.

In addition, a conference call on relief planning efforts has been scheduled by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health in conjunction with the League, the Massachusetts Hospital Association and the Massachusetts Senior Care Association for Thursday, January 21 from 9:00 to 10:30 a.m.
