Creating healthy neighborhoods, supporting healthy people - hosted by Christopher Auffrey


Well planned cities offer density and mixed land uses so residents might walk, bike or take efficient transit to work, shopping or entertainment. They can offer a low carbon footprint with abundant access to jobs, education, culture and nature, as well as high quality services that promote healthy lifestyles with opportunities for full self-realization and contribution. Yet the health benefits of cities are not equally shared, as continuing health disparities across neighborhoods are shocking. Speakers will discuss the changes we need to make to extend opportunities for healthy, fulfilling lives to all urban residents.
