A provocative and challenging new 4-hour public television series (2012), Designing Healthy Communities, hosted by celebrated author and teacher Richard Jackson, MD, MPH.Dr. Jackson makes the case that the rapidly deteriorating public health of our citizens is linked directly to nearly half-a-century of bad design decisions, now frozen in concrete. Each of the 4 hours looks at the different impacts our built environment in urban and suburbia areas have on key public health indices---obesity, diabetes, heart, asthma, cancer and depression.
