In celebration of this year’s National Public Health Week, Cambridge Health Alliance’s (CHA) Department of Community Health Improvement worked with local communities to read a health themed book to students. This year, CHA and Mayor Christenson visited with Mrs. Israelson’s first grade class at the Ferryway School to read Charlotte and the Quiet Place, by Deborah Sosin, a book that focuses on mindfulness and how we all should seek quiet in our daily adventures.
Cambridge Health Alliance is a vital and innovative community health system that provides essential services to Cambridge, Somerville, and Boston’s metro-north communities. It includes three hospital campuses, a network of primary care and specialty practices, and the Cambridge Public Health Department.
