Plan for a Healthy Los Angeles Project Website

Some exciting news for your Thursday morning! The Plan for a Healthy Los Angeles team (previously known as the Health Chapter) has launched its new project website: healthyplan.la. Their new interactive Health Profile allows visitors to access and view maps at a citywide and neighborhood area level. The profiles provide statistics about demographic and social characteristics, economic conditions, education, health conditions, land use, transportation, food systems, crime, housing, and environmental health. Healthyplan.la also provides information about the Plan, Health Atlas, and upcoming events.
