Health and Medical Coordinating Coalitions

Training Overview

The Health and Medical Coordinating Coalition (HMCC) model was introduced in Massachusetts in 2013 by the Department of Public Health, Office of Preparedness and Emergency Management. A multi-year phased approach led to the successful establishment of six regional HMCCs in 2017. This training will provide information about effective practices for sustaining HMCCs, so that they can continue their work toward improving preparedness and response capabilities and building resilience in their communities.
