Episode 2: Rebuilding Places of the Heart
Last Month, WCNY the local PBS in Syracuse, NY broadcast a show entitled Designing Healthy Communities, Rebuilding places of the Heart. The Designing Healthy Comminities’ webstite states:
“Now showing on PBS public television stations throughout the United States:
A provocative new 4-hour series, “Designing Healthy Communities.” Host/Narrator Richard Jackson, MD, MPH, looks at the impact our built environment has on key public health indices – obesity, diabetes, heart disease, asthma, cancer and depression. Dr. Jackson connects bad community design with burgeoning health costs, then analyzes and illustrates what citizens are doing about this urgent crisis by looking upstream for innovative solutions.”
Episode 2: Rebuilding Places of the Heart, focuses on the the efforts of the City of Syracuse to improve its heath and the efforts of the Onondaga Nation to improve the waters of Onondaga Lake. A great video to understand the importance of the lake culturally and the amount of toxins that have been dumped in it.
