Northeastern University Public Evaluation Lab (NU-PEL) Selected for MetroWest Health Foundation Project

The MetroWest Health Foundation has selected the Northeastern University Public Evaluation Lab (NU-PEL) to lead a comprehensive evaluation project to understand and improve upon the current public health infrastructure in MetroWest. This evaluation project will take place from April to December 2021. The NU-PEL research team consists of Drs. Tiana Yom, Laura Senier, and Alisa Lincoln as well as graduate students and undergraduate students from CSSH and Bouve College of Health Sciences. The NU-PEL research team will be interviewing leaders in municipal departments and human service organizations within the MetroWest region, across 25 communities, to invite their perspectives on the benefits and challenges of collaborating on public health initiatives. The aim of this important work is to help build and strengthen existing public health partnerships as well as develop recommendations for the MetroWest Health foundation and community stakeholders.
