    ABOUT THE EVENT

    Why does Alexandria have an eight-year life expectancy gap?

    Using a combination of community input and data analysis, Alexandria Health Department identified the City’s top health issues and inequities. Join us for a panel discussion and Q&A on our health report and what we should do about it. Let’s work together to address these challenges and build the healthiest community possible for every Alexandrian.
