CityViews 7/16/12: Red Butte Creek Cleanup/Street Medicine



Segment 1:

Crews have spent the past two years mopping up the oil spill that contaminated Red Butte Creek, the waterway that runs through Salt Lake’s east-side neighborhoods and Liberty Park. The Utah Division of Water Quality has been assessing the cleanup efforts and is asking for public feedback. On Monday, we’ll talk about the findings.

Segment 2:

The chronically homeless – people who live on the streets for years – die nearly 30 years earlier than their peers. Drs. Jim Withers and Pat Perri, leaders of the Street Medicine Institute, say it doesn’t have to be this way. They argue street medicine is a model for addressing preventable and treatable conditions which helps not only the homeless, but could reform the health care system as a whole. On Monday, Withers and Perri join us to talk about fixing the access issues and high costs of health care in America.
