Urban Workshop keynote puts focus on mental health

Come get the tools to better investigate, understand and relate the health of your city.
Sessions this year will focus on how urban life affects our health and the health of our readers, viewers and listeners. They will explore the impact of violence on neighborhood health, how the built environment affects public health, trends in urban aging, the real story on emergency rooms, gauging the financial health of city hospitals and more.

The Los Angeles Times columnist talked about how a series of columns on a homeless, mentally ill musician he passed on the streets each day became a moving book, "The Soloist." The book is being published in eight countries and a Dreamworks movie based on the book is scheduled to be released early next year. See a trailer for The Soloist!
