Marylou Sudders, MSW, ACSW, serves as the Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS) for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and holds both a bachelor’s degree with honors and a master’s degree in social work from Boston University. Sudders oversees 12 agencies and the MassHealth program. Her work at HHS covers a wide range of issues, including: health coverage, child welfare, community-based services, and public health matters like the opioid epidemic and the COVID-19 public health crisis.
In March 2020, Governor Baker appointed Secretary Sudders to head the COVID-19 Response Command Center, which leads a statewide response to the pandemic.
This event will give BU alumni the chance to hear directly from Secretary Sudders on various current events including: COVID-19 testing and treatment, the current vaccine rollout, collaboration with Federal and State partners, promoting telehealth through new legislation, how community-based services have evolved over the pandemic, and more.
The conversation will be facilitated by Karen Holmes-Ward (COM), WCVB Director of Public Affairs, Community Services & Host of ‘CityLine.’
