About the Event

Why does Alexandria have an eight-year life expectancy gap?

Using a combination of community input and data analysis, Alexandria Health Department identified the City's top health issues and inequities. Join us for a panel discussion and Q&A on our health report and what we should do about it. Let's work together to address these challenges and build the healthiest community possible for every Alexandrian.  

Panel Discussion

Introductory Remarks: Mayor Justin Wilson

Moderator: Charles Sumpter (Commissioner, Alexandria Commission on HIV/AIDS)

Panelists:

  • Dr. Stephen Haering (Health Director, Alexandria Health Department)
  • Rachel Lynch (Program Outreach Administrator, Inova Health System)
