Established in September 2008, the Health Education Planning Group seeks to enhance the role of health education in primary care practice at each of the MGH HealthCare Centers.

The Health Education Planning Group engages nurse educators, other clinical or non-clinical staff from the MGH HealthCare Centers in the process of identifying needs, setting priorities, developing teaching tools or programs, and improving health education servies across the MGH HealthCare Centers.  The group meets quarterly at CHA. 

One way the Health Education Planning Group uses to provide health education to patients and the general public is to organize presentations of health topics by MGH experts through collaborating with Chelsea community cable TV stations.

Since 2009, we have produced shows based on MGH Chelsea and community needs for health education.  For an up-to-date list of all the health education shows, please click here

We also maintain a list of selected patient education materials specifically for diabetes.  Click here to view the list.
