Monica Bharel, MD, MPH, became Commissioner of the Massachusetts Department of Public Health in February of 2015. As Commissioner, she is responsible for spearheading the state’s response to the opioid crisis, as well as reducing health disparities, finding public health solutions for health care reform, finding innovative solutions using data and evidence-based practices, and other health care quality improvement initiatives.

Dr. Bharel comes to DPH widely recognized for her dedication to health care for underserved and vulnerable populations, including ensuring that state and national health care reform efforts enhance the care for homeless individuals, without inadvertently widening health care disparities.

She previously served as the Chief Medical Officer of Boston Health Care for the Homeless Program. Under her leadership, the organization provided health care to over 12,500 homeless men, women and children in the greater Boston area at over 70 different sites.

Light refreshments will be provided.

The Speaker Series is an initiative of the Boston Health Care for the Homeless Program Emerging Leaders Board. The Speaker Series brings together civic-minded young professionals in the Greater Boston Area through open-dialogue and conversation with leaders in the healthcare, government and business sectors. Although the topics will vary, speakers will highlight how these areas intersect with philanthropy to shape the City of Boston.
