Public Health Improvement Measures in Lawrence, MA and COVID-19’s Impact on the Community

Part of our “Equity in Healthcare” series, Vilma Martinez-Dominguez, Community Development Director for the City of Lawrence, Massachusetts, discusses how the city is tackling the COIVD-19 crisis head on.  As a long time and highly regarded community builder and mobilizer, Vilma has been working with the Mayor and the City to partner the community, the government, and the local healthcare systems to not only address the current crisis but also make long term improvements in the lives of the people.  She also discusses how public health delivery has changed over time and how the conversation around racism has expanded to include its harmful effects in healthcare and is now part of every conversation that’s happening in leadership, today.
