The New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DOHMH)'s Office of Emergency Preparedness and Response (OEPR) was created to promote DOHMH's and NYC's ability to prevent, prepare for, respond to, and recover from health emergencies. OEPR is responsible for coordinating agency-wide emergency preparedness planning, exercises and training, evaluation of incident response and exercise performance as well as coordinating with community stakeholders, city, state, and federal partners on public health emergency planning and response. We work with healthcare partners to optimize the provision of health services during a large-scale disaster. OEPR's work focuses on public health through emergency preparedness and response and also recognizes the social inequities that can negatively impact our efforts to maintain and improve the health of NYC during and after a disaster. With these inequities in mind, OEPR is also working to improve its application of a social justice and racial equity lens to its emergency preparedness and response work. OEPR employees are expected to align their work with OEPR's efforts to combat the negative effects of injustice and work towards the most equitable post-disaster public health outcomes possible.

The Health Department unveiled a new anti-obesity campaign educating New Yorkers on the potential health risks, for both children and adults, of consuming too many sugary drinks. The ads highlight how sugary drinks can bring on obesity and diabetes, both of which can lead to serious health problems like heart disease and stroke. Accompanying these ads is a new Health Department Epi Data Brief on diabetes and its complications. According to the new report, in 2011, there were over 20,000 hospitalizations for diabetes and nearly 5,500 adults on dialysis due to diabetes, a 65% increase in the number of adults on dialysis due to diabetes since 2000.
