And it includes more detail on some of the events/convenings we have sponsored in recent months.

Innovative Ideas: Public Health

May 2020

The novel coronavirus known as COVID-19 is the public health crisis of our time. It represents perhaps the first “all hands on deck” moment since World War II asked Americans to make sacrifices, buy bonds, and support the war effort in any way they could. Unlike a war where the frontlines are a world away, we are fighting COVID-19 at home, and the soldiers on the frontlines are our municipal leaders and public health officials. We at CCM want to take this opportunity to present a Public Health issue, highlighting the ideas, the accomplishments and the individuals that keep Connecticut one of the healthiest states – number six according to U.S. News – year in and year out.
