Event Asks How To Make Kern County More Walkable, Healthy

May 6, 2014

Across California, urban planners and health professionals are increasingly looking at the connections between the design of our communities and the health of the people who live there. Many neighborhoods that lack sidewalks and access to parks have dramatically different health outcomes than those that do. Correcting that problem is the focus of an event taking place on Thursday in Kern County called “Community Design Matters   - Building Walkable Healthy Livable Communities." Dr. Avtar Nijjer-Sidhu, a senior health educator at the Kern County Environmental Health Division, joined us on Valley Edition to talk about this event.
