FORDHAM UNIVERSITY Triple A WFUV/ NEW YORK is offering another STRIKE A CHORD news and public affair series this month and into MARCH. The subject is urban health in NEW YORK CITY, particularly within the BRONX community.
The station will air various public service announcements starting FEBRUARY 17th through MARCH 16th featuring researchers and others working to improve health conditions in urban communities. In addition to the PSAs, WFUV will air a series of news reports on the topic, beginning the week of MARCH 3rd.
"Urban living comes with a lot of advantages, but it also comes with particular challenges,” says WFUV News Director GEORGE BODARKY. “Minority and low-income communities in particular are more likely to face health problems like asthma and obesity. But, a lot of great work is being done to help turn the tide and improve health in urban environments. This campaign focuses on some fascinating research taking place right in our own backyard."
