Can Urban Design Help Solve the Healthcare Crisis?
TED talks always make you feel "warm and fuzzy." You leave inspired and ready to save the world. Then you move on. I like that Jeff took a slightly different approach. I'm sure he has 101 design reasons on why living in a city is better for our health, but he chose to hit us with hard facts from economists and environmentalists. I left not only feeling inspired, but ready to act.
My only criticism: As someone who already lives in a walkable city and drives economically, I was left wanting more. Maybe I'm already doing my part? I highly doubt that. I might have to put Walkable City at the top of my reading list for more answers. Or maybe Jeff will further elaborate this week at TEDx MidAtlantic.
