Reimagining Health in Cities:
Challenges & New Directions

Today’s cities face many challenges, including climate change, rising inequality, and health disparities. Yet urban environments offer optimum opportunities for the development of innovative programs and policies that can improve population health. The biennial Drexel Urban Health Symposium brings together researchers, practitioners, and policy makers to spark conversations and new ideas about how to turn evidence into action, share creative methods and solutions, and stimulate debate among participants from diverse perspectives and fields.

Poster Session and Reception
A poster session and reception will take place on the afternoon of September 5, 2019. The poster session will cover a broad range of research topics related to urban health and provide an informal setting to discuss the themes of the symposium.
