The Color of Health, Part 1: A Growing Solution to the Food Desert Crisis

This series examines the growing divide between the health care "haves" and "have-nots" in racially segregated Chicago. A disproportionate number of people of color (specifically African Americans and non-white Latinos) are suffering from diabetes, breast cancer and other health problems at a much higher rate than non-Hispanic whites. Specifically, part I of this series examines the disparate levels of health between whites and people of color in the U.S., and takes a deeper look at one key factor that has been linked to this disparity: the rise of urban food deserts.
