What Makes a Healthy Neighborhood?

Tune in to the season finale of the Access podcast to learn about the intersection of health and economic development. Launched in December 2016, Access is a podcast from the Community Development departments of the Federal Reserve System. Episodes address social issues like economic mobility, affordable housing, small business development, and neighborhood revitalization. Each episode gives voice to community members and organizations across the United States about successful programs that help provide access to opportunity for low- and moderate-income individuals and families.

Episode 4, "Access to Healthy Neighborhoods," features leaders of an organization engaging neighbors to build vibrant communities, a community activist, and the Fed's own healthy neighborhoods expert, David Erickson, community development officer of the San Francisco Fed. Don't miss this season's final episode to find out how health and economic opportunity are interrelated.

New to podcasts? Podcasts are episodic digital audio programs, like shows you hear on public radio stations. They are a great way to access information or learn new things on the go, and many listeners download them for their commutes, workouts, or downtime. You can subscribe to podcasts through apps on your mobile device (Access is available on iTunes, Stitcher, and TuneIn) or listen through a browser (accesspodcast.org).
