Baltimore, Maryland Health and City Information
Baltimore, usually referred to as "Baltimore City," to distinguish it from Baltimore County, is located in Central Maryland along the Patapsco River on the Chesapeake Bay. This densely populated city is faced with several health concerns. Obesity rates in Baltimore are high leaving the city rated the "8th Fattest City" in the nation. The adult obesity rate is 28%, with 24% of the population admitting that they receive no physical activity at all. Baltimore has a moderate prevalence of diabetes, with 9.6% of residents considered diabetic and indicating a 4.3% increase since 2005. The city also has a high rate of poverty, with 25.6% of the population living below the poverty line, 28% of whom are under 18.
Given the high rate of obesity, diabetes and poverty, it is highly suggested that medical professionals in Baltimore receive certification for CPR, First Aid and BLS (Basic Life Support).
