Last year (2016), The Public Health Museum celebrated Public Health Week with activities including a tribute to long-time Museum volunteer and supporter Duncan Hazel as well as presentations by David E. Marcus, President of the Tewksbury Historical Society and Dr. Alfred DeMaria, Jr., Medical Director and State Epidemiologist, Bureau of Infectious Diseases, Massachusetts Department of Public Health. In addition, actress Collette Cullen performed as Anne Sullivan, the teacher and companion of Helen Keller.  Anne Sullivan is perhaps Tewksbury’s most famous woman and she lived at the Tewksbury Hospital for 4 years.  Ms. Cullen’s performance gave glimpse in to the life and work of Anne Sullivan.
