Long Island City
The New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene's mission is to protect and promote the health of all New Yorkers. The Department's Bureau of Chronic Disease Prevention and Control seeks to reduce the burden of chronic diseases -- heart disease, stroke, cancer, diabetes and respiratory diseases -- affecting the city's residents. Chronic diseases are responsible for the vast majority of deaths and hospitalizations among New Yorkers and also contribute significantly to a diminished quality of life.
