Acknowledgement and Action: How Lowell Community Health Center Is Tackling Racism

By Sheila Och, Chief Engagement & Equity Officer; Clare Gunther, Chief Advancement & Communications Officer. Lowell’s employee Equity Advisory Committee also reviewed this blog.

To mark our 50th anniversary two years ago, Lowell Community Health Center (Lowell CHC) installed a timeline in the lobby of our building, a renovated textile mill building in downtown Lowell, MA. The timeline’s start date: 1970, when Lowell CHC was established.
