Berkshire Partnership for Health is a county-wide initiative targeting four key areas of disease prevention and wellness – diabetes, high blood pressure, fall prevention, and tobacco treatment. Our team connects at-risk community members with the appropriate clinical and community resources, at no cost to the individual. Berkshire Partnership for Health also works with individuals to overcome obstacles to accessing healthcare.
