Founded in 1847, The New York Academy of Medicine is an independent, non-partisan, non-profit institution whose mission is to enhance the health of the public. Today it is a leading center for urban health policy and action working to enhance the health of people living in cities worldwide through research, education, advocacy, and prevention.
The Academy seeks to understand the physical and social factors of urban living that erode, and those that protect, the health of people living in cities, thereby paving the way for appropriate interventions and preventive measures to make city dwellers healthier and reduce disease prevalence.
