TV Series: Designing Healthy Communities

January 28, 2012 - March 4, 2012

A provocative new 4-hour television series airing on PBS. Host/Narrator Richard Jackson, MD, MPH, a board member of PSR-Los Angeles, looks at the impact our built environment has on key public health indices – obesity, diabetes, heart disease, asthma, cancer and depression.
