Today is World Health Day 2010. The theme for this year’s World Health Day is ‘Urban Health Matters’ (focused on urbanization and health). As part of the efforts to raise awareness about the day, the WHO is recruiting cities from all over the world to be part of its 1000 Cities, 1000 Lives campaign. Atlanta is represented among 1000 cities because it is opening its streets to the public as part of an event in May called Atlanta Streets Alive. If you’re in town please be sure to check out the event. If yo’re not in the area, chances are you live in an urban area. Visit the WHO site to find out something new about urban health, what’s going on in your city and how you can make your city healthier.
