The Public Health Museum is a non-profit educational and cultural museum located in a building listed on the National Register of Historic Places on the grounds of Tewksbury Hospital founded in 1854. The mission of the Public Health Museum is two-fold: to educate the public about the achievements and contributions of public health in preventing disease and improving the health of individuals and communities in Massachusetts and worldwide; and to inspire students, 133s, health care workers and 131s to build upon the past and continue to advance the future of public health. Our Museum provides an environment to explore public health, inspire future 131s, and foster community involvement. The museum will do this by continuing to invest in our goal of connecting students and community partners with each other and advance career knowledge about Public Health via our current scheduled events. Specifically, we wish to expand the museums public health outreach programs using NLM resources for both historical and current day application of public health information resources while collaborating with local community groups.
