The New York Academy of Medicine was created in 1847 to help promote the advancement of health and well-being for people living in urban areas. The Academy produces several regular publications regarding its studies, including City Voices: New Yorkers on Health. The publication seeks to create a voice for the older and lower income residents of the city who tend to go unheard.

City Voices: New Yorkers on Health focuses on the personal experiences of low-income residents in the five boroughs to help influence decision making regarding health issues for the communities. The publication’s data brief Aging: Health Challenges and the Role of Social Connections covered an age range up to 102 as well as all races and ethnicities. The study found a relatively high degree of chronic diseases and many challenges in obtaining available geriatric services.
