We've enjoyed working with the Department of Public Health and Massachusetts hospitals for the past 15 years. We'd also like to thank, with deep gratitude, the many people who have volunteered their time to Mass-DAC on the many committees and for adjudicating data during countless evenings throughout the years. Their participation has been invaluable and only added to the mission of Mass-DAC.
