The South Hadley Democratic Town Committee (SH DTC) will host candidate for Governor, Dr. Donald Berwick at its meeting Thursday, November 21, 7:00 p.m., in the Selectboard Meeting Room at the South Hadley Town Hall (116 Main St.).

Dr. Berwick is the former Administrator of the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services,
United States Department of Health and Human Services, and former President and CEO of the Institute for Healthcare Improvement. His thoughtful and articulate speech at the Massachusetts Democratic Convention last July inspired the delegates in attendance.

The Committee welcomes all interested Democrats to hear Dr. Berwick’s vision for the future of Massachusetts, including the continued progress made by the federal government to support preventative health measures and how to work together on both state and local levels to promote a healthier nation.
