The Marc Steiner Show

May 3, 2012 – Hour 2

In this week’s episode of Sound Bites, we take a look at a New York Times article that raised questions about links between “food deserts” – areas with limited access to grocery stores with fresh produce – and obesity.  We’re joined by Dr. Helen Lee, Policy Fellow at the Public Policy Institute of California, whose research is featured in the article, and Anne Palmer, Director of the Eating for the Future Program at the Center for a Livable Future at Johns Hopkins University.
