We're focusing in on efforts to improve health in the Bronx.

Urban living comes with a lot of advantages, but it also comes with particular challenges.  Minority and low income communities in particular are more likely to face health problems like asthma and obesity. But, a lot of great work is being done to help turn the tide and improve health in urban environments. 

As part of WFUV's Strike a Chord campaign, in this hour-long special we're specifically looking at efforts to help folks in the Bronx live healthier, more productive lives.
