The report series,"City Voices: New Yorkers on Health," is based on information gathered through an unusual and revealing Community Needs Assessment focused on the health of a broad range of New Yorkers.The reports discussed in this overview are the result of surveys and focus groups conducted in Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens and the Bronx, with residents representing more than 10 ethnic and cultural groups, talking about the issues that have the greatest impact on their overall health and wellbeing. Community health advocates also express their views. 

The reports offer valuable insights for policy makers, community leaders and others, on the health needs, interests and issues that shape the lives of city residents.
