Our Coalition’s mission is to ensure that everyone in Massachusetts receives health care that honors their goals, values, and preferences.
Through the Coalition, we have an opportunity to build on the good work of clinicians, community groups, researchers, and leaders in health and government by coordinating efforts. Our combined initiatives will promote substantial, systemic change.
