Dear Friends and Colleagues:
The Greater Lowell Health Alliance continues to grow stronger and more relevant every year. As a facilitator for decisive action and positive change to improve the health of our communities, the Alliance embraces a critical role in continuously assessing the community’s most urgent needs, then serves as a catalyst to bring together community partners to develop and implement plans of action to address those needs.
Never has this role been more important than during the COVID-19 pandemic. As the pandemic persisted this past year, the Alliance continuously monitored the needs of the region and stepped up its leadership in ensuring access to the COVID vaccines for those populations often impeded by racial, language, socioeconomic, and logistical barriers.
An important avenue through which we address unmet healthcare needs is front line of improving access to healthcare-related services and resources. This coming year we are excited to begin a strategic planning process that will define a path for organizational growth and a strong vision for the future to meet the growing needs of this organization and the community.
Our success is a result of true community collaboration, led by the dedicated members of our board, the outstanding GLHA task forces, our wonderful community partners and our exceptional GLHA team under the leadership of Executive Director Kerrie D’Entremont. I thank you all for your time, energy, and commitment to this essential organization.
Working together, we will continue to grow stronger and continue to fulfill our critical mission to improve the overall health of Greater Lowell’s communities and pursue health equity for all.
