Julie Morita was appointed commissioner of the Chicago Department of Public Health (CDPH) in early 2015. Under Dr. Morita’s leadership, CDPH developed and launched Healthy Chicago 2.0, a four-year plan to assure healthy equity by addressing the social determinants of health. Dr. Morita also led efforts at CDPH to pass several tobacco prevention initiatives including raising the age for purchasing tobacco products to 21 years.
In this talk, Dr. Morita will provide an overview of Healthy Chicago 2.0, which was launched in 2016. She will also share updates on its progress and CDPH’s plans for addressing the remaining challenges.
Dr. Morita earned a BS in biology from the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign and is a graduate of the University of Illinois of Chicago College of Medicine.
