Guests: Tracy Flood, MD, PhD. UW-Madison Statewide Obesity Initiative and Joe Ring, Executive Vice President Land Services, Park Towne Development
“Most medical conditions must be prevented outside of the clinic walls,” says Dr. Tracy Flood who is Director of Data for the Wisconsin obesity Prevention Initiative at the University of Wisconsin. That’s why she became a neighborhood doctor, collaborating with city planners and advocates to map healthy neighborhoods and open up green spaces.
On this program, Dr. Flood is joined by Joe Ring, who has led the development of Conservancy Place, where people can walk out their front doors and enjoy 650 acres of walking, hiking and biking trails and plenty of green space.
