Obesity, Smoking, etc. in Cleveland – 500 Cities Project at Data Days

Scott Frank, MD, MS from the Case Western Reserve University spoke at Data Days CLE, a 3-day event at the Global Center for Health Innovation bringing together experts and users in the fields of civic technology and data.

Dr. Frank used data from the 500 Cities Project to map conditions and behaviors such as obesity and smoking.   The 500 Cities project is a collaboration between CDC, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, and the CDC Foundation.

The purpose of the 500 Cities Project is to provide city- and census tract-level small area estimates for chronic disease risk factors, health outcomes, and clinical preventive service use for the largest 500 cities in the United States.
