Designing Healthy Communities with Dr. Richard Jackson

From the Designing Healthy Communities website: Dr. Richard Jackson searches past and present America for healthy, sustainable communities of all sizes and shapes that can serve as models for the rest of the nation. His journey takes him to Roseto, PA, Prairie Crossing, IL, New York City, Charleston, SC, and the forgotten 1960s urban renewal project of Lafayette Park in Detroit, MI, the brainchild of four men, including visionary architect, Mies van der Rohe. See below for a clip from Episode 4, "Searching for Shangri La" and see the attached .pdf for a full listing of upcoming television airings of Designing Healthy Communities.
