Movie + Dinner: Screening of “Designing Healthy Communities”

May 2 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

DESCRIPTION

We will be screening Episode 3: Social Policy in Concrete of the “Designing Healthy Communities” PBS series, narrated by our very own, Richard Jackson, MD, MPH.

Episode 3: Social Policy in Concrete Summary

Dr. Jackson believes it is every citizen’s right to live in a clean, healthy environment. This isn’t the case for many low-income neighborhoods, built near big transportation hubs and struggling industrial cities like Oakland, CA and Detroit, MI. We meet a morbidly obese grandmother struggling to raise seven grandchildren, all of whom have asthma as a result of living near the Port of Oakland. The city of Detroit resembles an abandoned war zone. Yet, hope blossoms in both. Health officials, community activists and a new breed of young Urban Pioneers are working to fix their cities by transforming urban wilderness and food deserts into inspirational new models for other troubled communities.
