MEDIA ALERT: Highlighting Health Disparities in Arlington

Published on April 09, 2019

Arlington is highly ranked when it comes to employment opportunities, quality of education and health outcomes. However, drilling into detailed results in different ethnic, racial and other often-marginalized groups reveals many disparities.

On Wednesday, April 10, 2019, two new community reports highlighting health and other disparities within Arlington will be released:

  • A Decade of Difference: Destination 2027 Steering Committee Report focuses on health disparities and the community conditions that create them.

  • 2019 Community Report on the Status of Children, Youth and Families calls attention to disparities in the health and well-being of children and youth based on factors such as income, race and ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity and level of English proficiency.

The meeting will include a panel of experts discussing report findings, recommendations and next steps.
