Healthier Living Through Design

Richard Jackson, MD, MPH, FAAP, is a pediatrician, professor, and chair of the Department of Environmental Health Sciences at UCLA’s Fielding School of Public Health and former director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Through his books, lectures, and recent four-part PBS series, Designing Healthy Communities, Jackson has become a leading advocate for the smarter design of communities, in which public health issues are prioritized in the construction of urban and suburban areas. Roger Sherman, AIA, is principal of Roger Sherman Architecture and Urban Design, and co-director of cityLAB, an urban think tank at UCLA, where he is also adjunct professor. His work has been featured on CNN and in Newsweek, Fast Company, and Metropolis. He is currently designing a new town in the Ecuadorean Amazon intended to represent a new model of sustainable urban development.
