    Designing Healthy Communities: Film Screening of Retrofitting Suburbia

    Designing Healthy Communities

    This mini-series consists of two films from the 2012 PBS series, "Designing Healthy Communities." http://designinghealthycommunities.org/ Hosted and narrated by Richard Jackson, MD, MPH, the films examine the link between our health and the way our communities — especially our suburbs — are designed. The films include inspiring American examples of communities choosing to change their built environments to make them less auto-dependent, healthier and more inviting. Short discussion follows each film. Snacks provided. FREE.

    Dr. Jackson argues that obesity, asthma, diabetes and heart disease are all aggravated by the auto-centric design of our communities. He explains that by changing the development patterns of the last half of the last century, communities can improve both physical and mental health, with examples in Colorado and Georgia. Short discussion follows.

    Dr. Jackson searches America for healthy, sustainable communities that can serve as models for the rest of the nation. His journey takes him to Prairie Crossing, IL, New York City, Charleston, SC, and the forgotten 1960s urban renewal project of Lafayette Park in Detroit, MI. Includes a study of what makes public spaces inviting.
