US Surgeon General Vivek Murthy: Step it Up

Vice_Admiral_Vivek_H._Murthy,_USPHSBack in September, US Surgeon General Vivek Murthy issued a call to action: Step it Up. In an effort to encourage a health lifestyle, he’s encouraging us to not only be outside walking more, he’s also working with urban planners to encourage walkable communities.

I spoke to him about what this means for communities of color and people with mobility disabilities – people that often find challenges in accessing walkable communities.

From his office in Washington, I spoke with Dr. Murthy about Step it Up. This interview was featured on the KBOO Evening News for September 10, 2015 and again for my healthy living episode of Intersections Radio. Check out the podcast!
