The Western MA Health Equity Network, in partnership with the Massachusetts Public Health Association, is hosting a series of Information & Action Sessions to demystify the seemingly complex policy issues that greatly impact our daily lives—housing, transportation, and food. These free, foundation-level information sessions will provide participants with the basic information they need to understand key state-level transportation, housing, and food access policies, and what actions individuals can take to influence decision-makers.

Guest speakers include Phineas Baxandall from the MA Budget and Policy Center and Andrea Freeman from the MA Public Health Association. 


The Campus Center is located in the middle of campus at 1 Campus Center Way. Parking is available in the Campus Center Garage.
