DC Healthy People 2020

The District has been named the fittest capital city in the nation! However, not everyone enjoys the same level of health and wellness. Ask yourself: How can we better support each other’s health?

Everyone's voice is important in DC Healthy People 2020 in order to bring about change in health outcomes by focusing on the following overarching themes:

  • Creating a paradigm shift to focus on population health
  • Addressing social determinants of health and achieving health equity
  • Strengthening the District's access to health data
  • Implementing evidence-based/promising practices and outcomes-oriented programs and policies

DC Healthy People 2020: our health plan, our health priorities, our accountability for those providing critical public health services to us. Let us know what would make our community healthier.

What can DC Healthy People 2020 do for you and your community? What can we all do for our city? We can shed LIGHT on realities and PRIORITIZE health issues important to YOU and ALL of US.

Share the health priorities important to your neighborhood/family and learn more about how DC’s framework promotes health equity (attainment of the highest level of health for all people). We will contact you and share our calendar of activities and work plan.
