Mayor Martin J. Walsh has appointed Dr. Jennifer Lo as the Boston Public Health Commission’s new medical director.
Lo will work to further advance the mission of the City’s Health and Human Services cabinet through BPHC.
Lo previously served as medical director at the Greater Roslindale Medical and Dental Center, where she implemented behavioral health, family planning, and physician training programs. Prior to that role she served as family team medical director at Boston Health Care for the Homeless Programs, where she led a multidisciplinary team to increase access to health care for homeless families and children in Boston. Lo is also an instructor of family medicine at Boston University’s School of Medicine.
“We’re very lucky to have a physician with extensive experience in health care and in working in governmental public health join BPHC’s executive office,” said BPHC Executive Director Monica Valdes Lupi. “We’re thrilled to welcome Dr. Lo to her new role as medical director.”
“I look forward to working with Mayor Walsh, the Board of Health, and Executive Director Valdes Lupi and her team to promote public health programs that advance health equity, strengthen the prevention and treatment of substance use disorders, and strengthen partnerships between public health and health care,” said Lo.
