A new city website,HealthyLouisvilleMetro.org, aims to track community goals for improving health in Louisville during the next six years.
The site contains information on the city’s rate of flu vaccinations, life expectancy, lung cancer deaths and other data. It’s a follow-up to the Healthy Louisville 2020 plan, which the city released earlier this year.
The Healthy Louisville 2020 plan is billed by Louisville-Jefferson County Metro Government as a strategic effort to significantly improve the city’s health on key measures: cancer mortality, chronic disease, tobacco use, low birth weight and obesity.
The site will give Louisville residents and policy makers up-to-date information to track progress toward building a healthier Louisville.
