In this week’s episode of our “Seeking the Heart” podcast, UNC Charlotte Professor Dr. Mark DeHaven shares ideas on improving community health and establishing a better system of healthcare for all. For Dr. DeHaven, any local effort to improve health must start by first understanding the patterns of relationships that already exist in local neighborhoods.
Dr. DeHaven uses lessons learned from leading community health interventions in places around the world (including China and Mexico) to influence his work in Charlotte, perhaps most prominently through his work with the innovative UCITY Family Zone.
This episode provides an introduction to a strategic community-based approach to improving community health. Along the way you will learn more about why Dr. DeHaven does this work, including his inspiration and what motivates him to serve others.
