Critical MASS to eliminate disparities
Critical MASS is a statewide coalition focused on the elimination health disparities in Massachusetts. Rather than targeting individual populations or disease specific areas, Critical MASS uses a broad-based approach, examining the underlying conditions that affect the health of unrepresented populations in Massachusetts. It is our aim to 1) initiate group action, 2) support community organizing efforts, 3) connect individuals and communities with needed resources and assets and 4) advocate for change that promotes local and statewide community health improvement. Our most recent acheivment is the printing of "Taking community ACTION on health disparities," a Toolkit designed to help community members take charge in the fight against disparities.
