Alexandria, VA- Ah…AHH…WHA-CHOO! How healthy is Alexandria? In June, an Alexandria Health Department report outlined a “complete” picture of the healthiness of the city’s residents, and the results are mixed.

Natalie Talis, a public health planner with the Health Department, is one of the leaders behind the City of Alexandria’s Community Health Assessment. The report states that health outcomes of residents depend on their race, gender, zip code, and education.

Now the Health Department is working with a Partnership for a Healthier Alexandria to develop a Community Health Improvement Plan over the next six months.

Natalie, thanks for being on the podcast!
