As a statewide association, we advocate, act and advise on critical public health challenges, assuring that all Maine residents have the opportunity to lead healthy lives, regardless of their income or where they live. We are not tied to a national agenda, which means we are responsive to the needs of Maine’s communities and we take that responsibility seriously. We believe we are only as healthy as the world around us. To that end, we work hard to assure the health of Maine’s people and Maine’s places.
