The Drexel University Dornsife School of Public Health (DSPH), through its Urban Health Collaborative (UHC), is excited to announce a new partnership with the Big Cities Health Coalition (BCHC) to support the Coalition’s vision of healthy, more equitable cities through big city innovation and leadership.
This new partnership with Drexel Urban Health Collaborative will advance BCHC’s work by bringing together faculty expertise and resources in policy, planning, and evaluation, as well as data knowledge and infrastructure. Most importantly, the partnership will enhance and support BCHC’s strong commitment to evidence-based urban health practice.
For the UHC, the partnership is an opportunity to advance its commitment to research, training, and policy translation in urban health locally and globally, leveraging the school’s expertise in public health practice in urban settings. Through this partnership, BCHC and UHC will enhance their ability to meet their shared vision of improving the health of people living in our nation’s largest cities. The first stage of this partnership will focus on the development of an urban health agenda that reflects the public health needs, assets, and best practices to inform action, policy, and resource allocation over time.Friday Letter Submission, Publish on January 24
