Leaders in Health Program: Capstone Event | November 16, 2017

Ten local public health practitioners—all graduates of Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health’s Leaders in Health program—discussed their efforts to promote health and wellness in the Boston area at a November 16 capstone event for the program. The practitioners came from city health departments, community-based organizations, and local health coalitions focused on public health issues ranging from physical activity to sexual health to housing justice.
