Community Health Organization Announces New Name

Jan 19, 2018

     A community health organization formed in Springfield, Massachusetts 20 years ago has started the new year by changing its name. 

    Partners for a Healthier Community this week became the Public Health Institute of Western Massachusetts.  

    The change was announced and new data on youth mental health was released at a meeting this week attended by more than 100 of the organization’s supporters. 

    WAMC’s Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief Paul Tuthill spoke with the institute’s executive director Jessica Collins.
