A Message from our Public Health Director, Lisa M. Tobin:
Hello and welcome to the Public Health landing page of the City of Lynn’s newly designed website! 
We hope that you found us ok and are able to navigate the City’s entire site to find what you need.
Here in the Public Health Division, we are made up of administrators, public health nurses, epidemiologists and community health workers from all walks of life with varied lived experiences. Our commitment is to ensure a strong quality of life for residents by assessing the social determinants of health for the city as a whole as well as sub populations.  Through these assessments we work toward finding ways to implement change when we see deficits as well as work towards supporting efforts that are successful.

Please visit our new Community Health Resource Room located in Room 103 at Lynn City Hall where we have lots of free stuff, literature and resources.  Please look through our page to see more of the work we do and most importantly, please reach out if you have questions or concerns.  You can follow us on Facebook at Lynn Public Health, email us at [email protected] or text us at 781-718-0684.  We’d love to hear from you!
