We believe that the path to sustainable change for the health of our communities lies in multi-sector, collaborative, interdisciplinary efforts that address the roots of health disparities, not the symptoms.

The Blue Hills Community Health Alliance (CHNA 20) works to improve the overall health of local residents through increased coordination and delivery of existing services, expanded community actions, and the mobilization of community resources.

CHNA 20 serves the 13 communities of Braintree, Canton, Cohasset, Hingham, Hull, Milton, Norwell, Norwood, Quincy, Randolph, Scituate, Sharon and Weymouth. We invite you to learn more about our mission and how we collaborate to help people lead healthier lives.

CHNA 20's funding source is through the Determination of Need (DoN) program which is a community health initiative required and overseen by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health (MDPH). Our current DoN Funders include: Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, South Shore Hospital, and Steward Health Care.


CHNA 20 frequently brings together members of the broader community to learn, share, and collaborate on efforts to improve public health in the 13 towns and cities we serve.
