Promoting population health research is critical to improving the health of New Yorkers. To facilitate opportunities for new research, the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DOHMH), The New York Academy of Medicine, and the New York City Epidemiology Forum have formed a new initiative—Health Data for New York City (HD4NYC): Promoting Population Health Research Through Data Sharing and Collaboration. HD4NYC is intended to facilitate access to and use of DOHMH’s extensive data resources and give graduate students and early career investigators an opportunity to become familiar with DOHMH databases, as they develop their careers in population health research.

October 26, 2015 • 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM

Two key challenges of the de Blasio administration are to fashion initiatives that will address the multi-faceted causes of homelessness, and to enhance the array of services available to people with significant mental health needs. These two challenges, in turn, are inter-related in that moderate-to-severe mental health conditions are more frequently found within the homeless population than overall. Commissioner Donna M. Corrado of the NYC Department for the Aging will apply an aging services lens in discussing these two issues individually and as inter-related phenomena.
