Expanding the Public Health Museum's educational community outreach programs

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. Continuing to our next goal - to extend the Public Health Museum's connection to community and organizational partners via our current scheduled events and our visitors. Specifically, we wish to expand the museum's 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.
