Among the nation’s 40 most populous cities, San Antonio was found lacking when it comes to healthy community policies, according to a national ranking project.
CityHealth, a project of the de Beaumont Foundation, identified nine evidence-based and “politically achievable” policies that could be implemented in each of the 40 largest cities to improve health and strengthen communities. San Antonio was recognized Wednesday for having three of the nine policies. This is the first year CityHealth performed its assessment and issued gold, silver and bronze medal distinctions.
