Baltimore City Health Commissioner Dr. Letitia Dzirasa

Baltimore City Health Department

Baltimore’s new health commissioner, Dr. Letitia Dzirasa, has been on the job for two months. She oversees an annual budget of $150 million dollars and initiatives aimed at improving the health of residents young and old. We talk about Dr. Dzirasa’s priorities: from food access to halting the opioid-overdose epidemic.
