Wrapping Up the Highs and Lows of Urban Public Health in 2018

By Chrissie Juliano, Director, Big Cities Health Coalition

As 2018 winds down, I am celebrating my four year anniversary with the Big Cities Health Coalition, which has been a leader in the urban public health field for 16 years. While our membership, staffing, location, and infrastructure have changed over the years, our mission, vision, and goals remain the same: to protect health of those who live in America’s big cities for present and future generations.

Welcome to The Big Cities Health Coalition Front Lines Blog. Here, you will find insights written by our members, the leadership of the nation's largest urban health departments. They will share first hand accounts of their work on the greatest challenges in American public health, as they fight to make their combined 51 million city residents healthier and safer. Stay tuned to hear about solutions that are working in our nation's big cities, and how these leaders are solving real public health problems every day.
