At the Tufts University School of Medicine, Public Health Program, Dr. Susan Koch-Weser served on the Milton, MA, “Return to School” Task Force from May-August 2020.

- Reinforce principles of equity throughout the district.
- Communicate progress to the MPS community and beyond, so that schools could continue to provide engaging, high-quality education and related services for all.
