Former Philadelphia District Attorney Lynne Abraham, Judge Nelson Diaz, former Philadelphia City Council member Jim Kenney, Melissa Murray Bailey, Doug Oliver, and former Pennsylvania State Senator Anthony Hardy Williams all participated. WHYY's Chris Satullo moderated the event.

Candidates addressed key issues facing Philadelphians, including access to care, challenges facing social service agencies, public health innovation, city government opportunities, research and evaluation, and policy development. Included in the discussion were preliminary data from the 2015 Community Health Data Base's Southeastern Pennsylvania Household Health Survey (HHS), the region's most comprehensive health survey covering 10,000 randomly selected households in Bucks, Chester, Delaware, Montgomery, and Philadelphia Counties.
