- In English.
- Hosted by author and national health expert Dr. Richard Jackson, Designing Healthy Communities is a 4 part series and companion book that takes a comprehensive look at the impact America's built environment has on public health, and at the people and communities working to turn things around through innovative solutions. Many of today's major health problems - obesity, diabetes, heart disease, asthma, cancer and depression - can be traced directly to nearly half-a-century of bad design decisions in urban and suburban areas. In each episode, Dr. Jackson travels the country to explore problems in a variety of communities, and profile best practice models. As Dr. Jackson illustrates, re-designing our built environment can improve both physical and mental health. Many cities are struggling to resuscitate their dying downtown and overcome a history of industrial pollution. This episode looks at how families and young people seek to repair main street America by rebuilding places of the heart.
