Community Outreach

 

Access to reliable health information is a powerful contributor to the health of individuals, families and communities. Engaging individuals where they live, work and play builds meaningful relationships and expanded partnerships that empower shared knowledge, better connections to resources and confidence in leading healthier lives.

Our education/outreach team draws from a variety of service lines across Providence Regional Medical Center Everett, each with their specific focus and area of interest. Collectively, we promote awareness of key priority public health, health education, and prevention messages for our diverse communities. Team members are advocates and trusted resources for science-based health information, messages and campaigns on a variety of topics.
