SXgood Stories: Cities + Health

Tuesday, March 15
12:00PM - 1:00PM

SXgood Stories are a series of short talks featuring leading social impact innovators. The Cities + Health Stories explores the connection between the built environment and public health. Speakers will reveal how our urban environments affect patterns of addiction, obesity and much more.

The accompanying SXgood Lab (immediately following the Stories session at the SXgood Hub) will allow participants the opportunity to explore the topic in-depth.

This event is part of the SXgood Hub, a creative content venue that is curated and produced by SXSW Eco. Learn more and see the Hub’s full schedule of events here.
