CAUSES TV: More Than Housing
As Washington DC’s only public university, and the only urban landgrant university in the nation, the University of the District of Columbia conducts research and offers academic and community outreach programs that expand knowledge about urban agriculture, healthy eating habits, food safety, greener and more livable neighborhoods, and urban sustainability. In other words, our programs focus on the health of people and on the health of our natural and built environment; thus our motto is Healthy Cities – Healthy People. One of the federal agencies that know a lot about the making of healthy cities is HUD, The United States Agency for Housing and Urban Development. Joining Dr. O'Hara to talk more about HUD is Mr. Marvin Turner, Regional Director of the United States Department for Housing and Urban Development.
