Big Cities Health Coalition

The Big Cities Health Coalition (BCHC) is a forum for the leaders of America’s largest metropolitan health departments to exchange strategies and jointly address issues to promote and protect the health and safety of the 62 million people they serve. Together, these public health officials directly affect the health and well-being of one in six Americans. The BCHC is affiliated to the National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO). Posts in this series are published with permission from BCHC and originally appeared on the Front Lines Blog.
