The Avon, Holbrook and Randolph Public Health Nursing Coalition is made possible by a $46,000 state Community Compact Grant supported by the Norfolk County Commissioners to bring together the three communities to create more regional public health nursing services for local residents. As part of the initiative, local officials have been placing a particular emphasis on helping to prioritize senior wellness initiatives, combating the opiate epidemic and responding to the influx of tuberculosis cases, among other goals.
