Last month, the Greater Louisville Project released a study that said how long residents live depends largely on their level of educational attainment and their neighborhood. 

City leaders said they wanted the study to galvanize residents to act upon the health issues facing Louisville. 

The study will be the topic of a WFPL panel discussion  on Monday in Louisville Public Media's performance studio.

Speakers for the “Building a Healthier Louisville” discussion will include:

  • LaQuandra Nesbitt, director of the Louisville Metro Department of Health and Wellness
  • Sandra F. Brooks, system vice president for research and prevention for Norton Healthcare
  • Diana Han, chief medical officer/global medical director for GE Home & Business Solutions

WFPL's Jonathan Bastian will moderate.

The discussion at 1 p.m. Monday is open to the public and free to attend. You can RSVP here.
