Can Knoxville plan towards health?

Stephanie Welch found bad news and good news in the book Toward the Healthy City: People, Places, and the Politics of Urban Planning by Jason Corburn. With “healthy city planning” based on participatory action, coalition building, and ongoing monitoring, Corburn hopes to address health disparities caused by the built environment and the policies that shape it. Welch was Community Development and Planning Director of the Knox County Health Department (Recorded September 19, 2012).
