This archived webinar focuses on the Academic Health Collaborative of Worcester (MA) and was originally presented as the December 2016 Academic Health Department (AHD) Learning Community meeting. The Academic Health Collaborative of Worcester fosters collaboration between the Worcester Division of Public Health, UMass Memorial Health Care, and academic partners to improve community health and develop public health research and practice leaders.
