"Cambridge Health Alliance was thrilled to participate in the 2012 Green Streets Initiative. Using alternative methods to get around improves our health and the health of our environment which aligns with CHA's mission to improve the health of our communities. CHA staff found it fun to think about out-of-the-box ways to get around, and on beautiful spring and summer days, what a treat it was to be out in the sun during the course of our routine days. We can't wait to get going in the 2013 Challenge!" – Kelly O'Connor, Program Manager, Population Health, Cambridge Health Alliances
