Sending special thanks to CPH-NEW's very talented External Advisory Committee (pictured below), who met in person on May 31st at UMass Lowell. Members suggested new ways to improve and expand our pilot grant program and research activities. They also advised us on the launch of the CPH-NEW Healthy Workplace Participatory Program web site, coming in September, 2013. Thanks to everyone for lending their expertise.
