Health of Boston report: Outcomes improve for some infants in Boston

The latest Health of Boston Report is out. This year, the report published by the Boston Public Health Commission delves into data on the city’s neighborhoods to find out how each is doing on important health indicators, such as smoking, obesity, diabetes, and maternal and infant health.

The full report includes loads of information about each neighborhood’s health assets and makeup. Context for that work is laid out in a newsletter called Place Matters.
