Through its partnership with Morehouse School of Medicine (MSM), the City of East Point, Georgia has been selected as one of 29 US cities to be added to the City Health Dashboard, a nationwide data project sponsored by the NYU Langone Department of Population Health, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, and NYU's Wagner Graduate School of Public Service.
The National Center for Primary Care at Morehouse School of Medicine and the City of East Point launched a health equity partnership in February 2022 after MSM was chosen by US Department of Health and Human Services' Office of Minority Health to participate in the Framework to Address Health Disparities Through Collaborative Policy Efforts program.
As part of that collaboration, MSM submitted an application on the City of East Point's behalf in response to the Dashboard’s inaugural "Put Us on the Map Challenge," which sought to include smaller cities with a population between 4,000 and 50,000 residents. Community-level data for the City of East Point is expected to be publicly available on the national City Health Dashboard website in early Summer 2022.
