About the Kraft Center for Community Health

With the support of Partners HealthCare and its founding academic medical centers—Massachusetts General and Brigham and Women’s Hospitals—The Kraft Center for Community Health helps develop the careers of physicians and nurses from throughout the country who are committed to improving the health of our communities.
