SOCIAL AND PUBLIC HEALTH OBJECTIVES

 

Twenty percent of the residents of North Adams live below the poverty line. One of the Principal Objectives of EMRCA and the North Adams Cultural Development Master Plan is to help alleviate the diseases of despair related poverty: depression; obesity; diabetes; alcohol abuse; drug abuse; opioid abuse; and suicide.

 

 

“Investments in economic development projects like EMRCA are statistically better for the improvement of Public Health than equivalent investments in pure medical research.”
