Date:12/12/2012

visits attributable to childhood asthma.2

Approximately 31 percent of adults in the city of St. Louis are obese.2 Additionally, St. Louis is one of the top 10 most challenging places to live with asthma3—11.4 percent of children in the city have been diagnosed with the disease.2

Still, these problems continue in spite of the leading academic, medical institutions, community-based non-profit and city efforts that have demonstrated success.

The town hall meeting, moderated by John Donvan, correspondent for ABC News, will challenge conventional thinking about what it means to be a healthy community and get participants to think more broadly about issues affecting their city. The meeting will feature innovative technology to integrate attendees into the on-stage conversation on community health to have a solutions-oriented conversation based on feedback from attendees representative of the broader St. Louis community.

Each group from the audience will use iPads powered by MtgWorksTM, an app that allows for the rapid collection of responses and the real-time synthesis of key themes, which will then be explored by the guest panel in a large discussion.

Additional information about "A Conversation on Community Health," hosted by The Atlantic - The St. Louis town hall will be available via live stream from 3 – 5:30 p.m. ET on Wednesday, December 12 at http://events.theatlantic.com

Over the course of the three city program, The Atlantic will be exploring the many facets of community health through an ongoing special report available at http://theatlantic.com/special-report/health-nation.

Join the conversation on Twitter @GSKUS or @Atlantic_Live, #HealthyCommunity.
