A Message From Our President

As we round the corner into fall, winter is not far behind. That means we are squarely entering respiratory virus season, when flu, COVID-19, RSV and other viruses are known to cause severe illness, hospitalization and death. Now is the time to protect yourself, your families and your communities against these viruses.


We have been through a lot over the past three plus years dealing with the global COVID-19 pandemic, but we are so much better prepared today than we were before with information, resources, treatments, therapeutics and vaccines. Please visit the New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services COVID-19 Vaccine webpage for more information about the COVID-19 vaccine, as well as information about the flu and RSV. Or visit nhstayswell.org, a joint effort of the New Hampshire Medical Society, Bi-State Primary Care Association, and the Foundation for Healthy Communities, an affiliate of the New Hampshire Hospital Association, to learn more about the importance of being proactive to protect your health and those around you.


Talk to your doctor or other trusted health care provider to learn about the benefits of protecting you and your family against respiratory viruses this season. Together, we can get through this respiratory virus season and stay connected to our friends, family, neighbors and co-workers so that we don’t miss the important moments in our lives.


Be healthy, stay well!


Steve Ahnen
