Reimagining Health in Cities

September 10, 2015

During September 10-11 in Drexel, USA, the first Drexel School of Public Health Symposium, new directions in urban health research and action, brought together researchers, practitioners, policymakers and community members to discuss how to address these health inequalities. 
The health challenges of cities are growing and have expanded beyond traditional urban health concerns -- infectious diseases and toxic environmental exposures -- to encompass chronic diseases associated with poor diets, sedentary life styles, and physical and mental health issues that are linked to violence, poverty, unemployment, income insecurity and poor working conditions.
