In preparation for tomorrow’s Walk With a Doc (and actually several docs now) (Click here to sign up & Join), I ran a few maps showing large-ish differences in the determinants of health across the future walkable span. What could/will a beautiful park connecting them do to produce health?
Let’s talk about it tomorrow, as we walk.
One problem that exists today around mapping DC is that a lot of this data is at the county level, which misrepresents DC’s health diversity, a lot ( see: Do national numbers inaccurately represent Washington, DC’s obesity condition? what electronic and personal health records can do to help | Ted Eytan, MD) – we keep getting ranked as among the “thinnest” even though there are huge differences across our city.
