On April 2nd, MPHA will welcome Carlene Pavlos to the team as our new Executive Director. We are thrilled to have Carlene coming aboard and look forward to her bringing decades of public health leadership to advance MPHA's health equity agenda.
On behalf of MPHA's board and staff, I want to thank Jodie Silverman for her invaluable guidance and management as MPHA's Interim Executive Director over the past year. We could not be more grateful to Jodie for stepping up to lead us through this time of transition. Please join me in thanking Jodie for her leadership!

I am pleased to share that Governor Baker has authorized an additional $50 million in funding for the Complete Streets Program in a bill he filed last week. MPHA is proud to have led the campaign for this program to create safer streets for pedestrians, bicyclists, and transit users.
