Last week, Senator Sal DiDomenico hosted a public health forum on Facebook Live on how the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted the Commonwealth’s healthcare system and the Greater Boston community. The Senator brought together healthcare professionals Dr. Mallika Marshall of CBS Boston and MGH, Cambridge Health Alliance CEO Dr. Assaad Sayah, and Medical Director of MGH Chelsea Dr. Dean Xerras for a conversation on the state of Massachusetts’s healthcare system during the time of coronavirus, especially in hard hit communities like Chelsea, Everett, and other hotspot communities throughout the Greater Boston area.
“I want to thank Dr. Marshall, Dr. Sayah and Dr. Xerras for joining me for our Facebook Live public health forum,” said Senator DiDomenico. “It was a very informative discussion and great opportunity for my constituents to receive a detailed account from these leading experts on how our healthcare system is responding to this crisis and how our community can move forward. Statewide, as conversations pivot towards re-opening, it is critical that we be aware that our actions and public health response today will dictate where we are in the days ahead. This panel did an excellent job putting into perspective just how far we have come in dealing with this crisis, but also just how much more work is needed in the days, weeks, and months ahead. I encourage all my constituents to view our discussion for additional insight on the state of our COVID-19 response.”
Senator DiDomenico held this event on Wednesday May 27th live from his official Senate Facebook page. However, the discussion is still available to watch at any point by visiting: https://www.facebook.com/SenSalDiDomenico/.
