audience:
Everyone
details:
Where you live in a particular U.S. city may be closely correlated to your predicted life expectancy. In New Orleans, for example, there is a 25-year difference in life expectancy between one parish and another only three miles away. This pattern of health disparities by neighborhood repeats itself in Chicago, New York, the Bay Area and other American cities.

In 2005, Tulsa, Oklahoma, became one of the first cities to recognize neighborhood-based disparities in life expectancy. A study found that Tulsa's North Tulsa neighborhood had a life expectancy 14 years lower than that of mid-town Tulsa. Dr. Clancy will discuss the city's ten-year journey, from 2005 to 2015, to address this disparity, including the development of neighborhood-specific initiatives, and the lessons learned along the way about improving the health of North Tulsa residents. The successes of the past decade have served as inspiration for another 10-year planning initiative that will focus on mental health system improvements in Tulsa.
