How do we build Healthy Places? May 20 Seminar in Chicago Explores the Issue

Via the Center for Neighborhood Technology:

How Do We Build Healthy Places?: Urban Planning, Food, and Health

05/20/2006 — 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM
Garfield Park Conservatory
300 N Central Park Ave
Chicago, Illinois 60624-1945

Registration Required

Join The Public Square at the Illinois Humanities Council and the Neighborhood Writing Alliance for a provocative discussion with the community on how urban planning affects our access to food, our stress level, and our access to quality healthcare. The conversation will be lead by:

Janet Smith, Nathalie P. Voorhees Neighborhood Center (moderator)
Daniel Block, Chicago State University
Miguel Morales, Co-op Humboldt Park
Ben Helphand, Center for Neighborhood Technology

This event is part of Health as a Human Right: A Series of Community Conversations, co-organized by The Public Square at the Illinois Humanities Council and the Neighborhood Writing Alliance on public health and access to healthcare. We will consider not only the challenges of an inadequate healthcare system, but also the way in which issues such as geography, demographic inequalities, food distribution, sexuality, adolescent access to healthcare, and the strains of war can and should inform our larger picture of public health.

Hi, Jennifer. I'm glad you got this up and I hope to see you if you attend this! Dan Block and I have had long discussions about the grocery store problems and he's done the best research on it yet.
