In March 2010, the Philadelphia Department of Public Health launched Get Healthy Philly, a groundbreaking public health initiative bringing together government, community-based
organizations, academia, and the private sector.
Get Healthy Philly envisions a Philadelphia where all residents can live, work, learn, shop, worship, and play in environments that promote healthy eating, active living, and a smoke-free existence.
Get Healthy Philly works to ensure that Philadelphians can enjoy long, productive lives free from disease, disability, and premature death.
