Norfolk County-8 Public Health Coalition

Norfolk County-8 Public Health Coalition

The Norfolk County-8 (NC-8) Local Public Health Coalition is comprised of the Boards of Health/Health Departments in Canton, Dedham, Milton, Needham, Norwood, Walpole, Wellesley, and Westwood, Massachusetts.  NC-8 has been awarded a grant by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health (MDPH) as part of the Public Health Excellence Grant Program for Shared Services. The Town of Norwood will serve as fiscal agent.

​For more than a decade, the communities within the coalition have been working together on various public health planning and emergency preparedness efforts. In addition, the Walpole Health Department officially joined the NC-8 Local Public Health Coalition in January, 2019.

The NC-8 Local Public Health Coalition meets monthly in order to share information, resources, develop policies, etc. The coalition also works together on other public health initiatives, including, substance abuse prevention, retail food standards, etc. In addition, the coalition manages a group of Medical Reserve Corps (MRC) volunteers, the Norfolk County-8 Medical Reserve Corps (NC-8 MRC).
