BIDMC New Inpatient Building Community-based Health Initiative (CHI)

In accordance with Massachusetts Department of Public Health (MADPH) guidelines and MADPH's identified priorities, BIDMC will be allocating funds to the Community-based Health Initiative (CHI). 


All activities related to CHI, including allocating and prioritizing funds in support of the social determinants of health and those who face health disparities, will be selected and overseen by a proposed NIB Community Advisory Committee (CAC). Members of the CAC, in conjunction with the BIDMC community, will review community health needs assessments and engage the community prior to allocating funds.

The proposed CAC composition adheres to new guidelines and includes representatives and/or residents from BIDMC's five focused neighborhoods – Bowdoin/Geneva, Roxbury, Allston/Brighton, Fenway/Kenmore, and Chinatown. All CAC meetings will allow for public comment and attendance and minutes will be posted on this web-page.
