Health Commissioner Sigalle Reiss and the Brookline Department of Public Health and Human Services invite members of the community to attend an open house as part of National Public Health Week 2023.
The open house will be held on Monday, April 03, 2023, between the hours of 03:00 p.m. and 06:00 p.m., at the Department of Public Health, 11 Pierce Street, Brookline, MA 02445.
Attendees will have the opportunity to network with staff, learn about the programs and services the Department provides, and discover careers in public health. Attendees will also be able to register for trainings, such as the NARCAN and STOP the Bleed trainings.
Visitors to the open house also will be eligible to win one of three giveaway prizes. The prizes include a pool pass for 16 drop-in lap swims at the Evelyn Kirrane Aquatic Center in Brookline, one yearly adult swim pass that can be used for a full year of drop-in lap swims, or a round of golf for four players with golf carts at the Brookline Golf Course. Snacks will also be provided at the event.
The open house is being hosted as part of the American Public Health Association’s National Public Health Week (NPHW), held on April 03-09, 2023. Each year, NPHW is held to educate the public, policymakers, and practitioners about issues related to each year’s theme. This year’s theme is “Centering and Celebrating Cultures in Health.” The message aims to ensure that everyone, in all cultural communities, has a chance at a long and healthy life.
