About Urban Health Today
Urban Health Today is the leading independent news source that provides the urban healthcare professional with relevant clinical news and policy developments that directly impact the urban healthcare provider and their patients. Urban Health Today’s coverage focuses on clinical, social, and environmental health disparities.
Eighty-four percent of our population – 271 million Americans living in cities – are being served by a Healthcare system that does not have a dedicated source of information with the urban healthcare setting in mind.
Healthcare professionals who serve in urban communities have to contend with a variety of conditions specific to these larger, densely populated centers. Infectious diseases, chronic and acute morbidities, and mental illness are some of the challenges the city healthcare provider regularly encounter. Racial and ethnic disparities in the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of diseases and conditions add to the problems that affect their patient population.
Our mission is to bring awareness to emerging research and public health initiatives. Urban Health Today also provides commentary regarding these disparities and how our healthcare system can better address them. We adhere to policies of fact verification and disclosures of interest by sources quoted in our articles. We encourage a lively forum of perspectives and opinions from our unique and diverse online communities. Information on this site aims to complement and not replace the information contained in our leading scientific journals.
