    Is Philly In Denial About Its Jobs Problem? - The Philadelphia Citizen
    Deep in the recent jobs report number doled out by the federal Bureau of Labor Statistics, is a glimpse of what the unemployment situation in Philadelphia looks like.

The 1889 Jefferson Center for Population Health is working with community groups and organizations to help make the Johnstown region healthier, The Tribune-Democrat reports.

    When they set out to make the Cambria-Somerset county region healthier, founders of the 1889 Jefferson Center for Population Health knew they had set a lofty goal. Even focusing in for the first year on preventing diabetes, and improving diabetes management and treatment, would take a Herculean effort.
