Whittier Street: Patients Rights Board

  • Northeastern Crossing 1175 Tremont Street Roxbury, Massachusetts 02120 (map)

Join us on March 13, 6-8 pm at Northeastern Crossing for a "Patients Rights Board" highlighting patient testimonies to address the recent staff, orthodontic, urgent care, and mental health cuts at Whittier Street Health Center. 

During the event, diverse patients of the Health Center, who are demanding a reversal of recent cuts to services, will discuss the impact of those cuts on patient care at Whittier Street. A panel of faith, community, and, labor leaders will hear their testimony and arrive at a series of recommendations for the future of the Health Center.

Good, affordable healthcare is increasingly hard to find in communities of color in our city, and the Whittier Street Health Center used to be a place where Roxbury and South End community members could go for high-quality healthcare services. We want that Whittier Street Clinic back. Come in solidarity to demand that these vital services be reinstated for our neighbors in Roxbury and greater Boston!
