December 12, 2012 – Segment 2

We discuss a report that came out last month showing that where you live in Baltimore correlates to your health outcome in life. In some cases, life expectancy differences between neighborhoods in Baltimore amounted to 30 years. We discuss the Baltimore City’s Community Health Equity Report released by the Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies and Equity Matters, Inc., titled “Place Matters for Health in Baltimore: Ensuring Opportunities for Good Health for All” with

  • Michael Scott, Chief Equity Officer, President, and Co-Founder of Equity Matters, Inc. and Chair of the Baltimore Place Matters Collaborative for Health Equity; and 
  • Adrienne Starks, Chief Operating Officer of Equity Matters, Inc. and a Postdoctoral Fellow at the National Cancer Institute, National Institutes of Health.
