Medical Emergency Response Plan

In the spring of 2012, the Legislature passed and Governor Patrick signed into law, An Act Relative to Medical Emergency Response 
Plans for Schools, Chapter 77 of the Acts of 2012 (Medical  Emergency Law). The full text of the law is in Appendix 3. The Act amended Massachusetts General Laws Chapter 69 by adding Section 8A.

Under the law, every school committee must ensure that every school under its jurisdiction has a written Medical Emergency Response Plan. The purpose of the Medical Emergency Response Plan is to reduce
the incidence of life-threatening emergencies, and to promote an efficient response to such emergencies. Read the

Youth Risk Behavior Survey (YRBS)

Begun in 1997, Emerson Hospital is now partnering with ten local school districts to develop and implement the Youth Risk Behavior Survey as a means of improving the health status of young people in our community. Emerson has carried out a comprehensive community health needs assessment, developed partnerships with different groups to address public health issues and leveraged other resources. Having successfully implemented nine surveys of over 10,000 students, this coordinated initiative continues Emerson’s objectives of supporting health education programming in local districts, as well as positive and responsive programs in the community.  Please access Emerson's YRBS FAQ for more information.
