Contract Dates: 10/18/2023 - 06/30/2027


MDPH is dedicated to promoting racial equity and eliminating inequitable morbidity and mortality due to race and other social factors for populations in Massachusetts. Inequities result from social, economic, and environmental structural factors that adversely affect certain groups of people, sometimes called the social determinants of health. Addressing racial equity focuses on the social determinants of health, incorporates cultural relevance and responsiveness, actively addresses structural and interpersonal racism, and stresses accountability for improving outcomes for all populations.

  • Survey research, including data collection, analysis and development of needs assessment

  • Complex survey sample designs
