Linking Sprawl and Public Health


Kaid Benfield’s highlighted the topic and video in a recent post.  If you’re reading this, then you should absolutely take a look at Mr. Benfield’s blog.

The video below is a talk by Dr. Howard Frumkin, MD, director of the National Center for Environmental Health at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, (at least) on the connections between sprawl, smart and sustainable growth, and public health.

Dr. Frumkin gave the talk a couple of weeks ago at the National Building Museum.

The video is an hour+ and I haven’t finished the whole thing, but so far, so good…
