Video: Is the ‘Modern Neighborhood’ a Root Cause of American Obesity?
Is the “modern neighborhood” a root cause of the U.S. obesity epidemic?
Check out this new video featuring Dr. James Sallis, a psychology professor at San Diego State University, who works to change how U.S. residential areas are designed and constructed by emphasizing pedestrian access and public parks and de-emphasizing the need for cars for everyday life.
Sallis also directs Active Living Research, a granting program for The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation that supports studies to prevent childhood obesity and promote active communities.
