NYC Department of Health
Description: We're one of the largest public health agencies in the world, serving 8 million New Yorkers from diverse ethnic, cultural and economic backgrounds. After more than 200 years of leadership in the field, we're also one of our nation's oldest public health agencies.
Our work is broad-ranging. You see us in the inspection grades of dining establishments, the licenses that dogs wear, the low- to no-cost health clinics in your neighborhood, and the birth certificates for newborns.
