Annotated Bibliography Number Seven

Perdue, Wendy Collins, Lesley A. Stone, and Lawrence O. Gostin. “The Built Environment and Its Relationship to the Public’s Health: The Legal Framework.” National Center for Biotechnology Information. American Journal of Public Health, Sept. 2003. Web. 25 Mar. 2016. In this article titled The Built Environment and Its Relationship to the Public’s Health: The Legal Framework, written by Wendy Collins Perdue, JD, Lesley A. Stone, JD, and Lawrence O. Gostin, JD, LLD, there’s a discussion and some recommendations made in regard to the built environment, how it can affect health, and what one can do to influence how the built environment is. The paper gives some ways one can do this. Essentially, if one wants to become an effective advocate for a healthy built environment, then they should acquire evidence, get involved as early as possible during the building process, and be defender for the health of children and the downtrodden. According to the article, the latter is especially important because the health of the poor are more likely to be effected by the bad decisions of policy makers and builders than the...

Annotated Bibliography #10

Image found in article on Pacific Standard. http://www.psmag.com/business-economics/can-development-reduce-poverty-3943 The Summary/Evidence This picture shows a dilapidated street, that contains trash strewn across it. The picture illustrates a poor community that seems to be on the fringe of a city, due to the tall building in the background. The poor living conditions can not be healthy for the citizens of this community. Since Atlanta is a city with poor neighborhoods, like any other major city, this picture may be representative of conditions that can be found in the city. Why this Source? I chose this source because it provides a street level view from a poor street. It provides a visual of poor living conditions that cannot be received from words. Flaws/Weaknesses A flaw this picture has is that it only provides a visual of a street, and not other aspects of the exterior environment. How is it related? This picture can be related to the annotated bibliographies I did  on the impact of the built environment on health....

Annotated Bibliography #9

Image from Huffington Post article by F. Kaid Benfield. The Summary and Evidence This picture exhibits an example of a neighborhood that promotes walking and cycling. Sidewalks can be seen, and this encourages residents to walk or cycle to their destinations if it is within a reasonable distance. It also shows a father and daughter who are on bicycles, and are putting the sidewalks available to good use. The image provides an example of how the built environment can be used to improve health, and it can be used as a model to use in Atlanta neighborhoods that do not contain features such as sidewalks. Why this Source? I chose this source because it shows a way that the built environment can be used to impact health in a positive way. Flaws/Weaknesses A flaw this picture contains is that it depicts a more suburban community. In an urban city such as Atlanta, it may not be easy to incorporate features such as sidewalks. How is it Related? This picture builds onto another annotated bibliography I did on the walkability of neighborhoods....

mlamar2 [Mark Lamar]. “Annotated Bibliography Entry 5: Impacts of Our Built Environment on Public Health.” mlamar2’s Blog. 20 Feb. 2016. Web. 23 March 2016. The Summary and Evidence The blog post by Mark Lamar is an annotated bibliography that describes the impact of the built environment on public health. Lamar describes an article by Allen Dearry that addresses environmental problems and health problems caused by the built environment. Lamar talks about how urban communities can contribute to obesity because of the use of cars. He also talks about how enjoying the luxuries that come with modern cities lead to less exercise. Since Atlanta is a modern city, this can relate directly to it. The over abundance of cars can lead to obesity. Found at: http://media.cmgdigital.com/shared/img/photos/2013/03/29/f5/9a/033013_weekend_traffic.JPG Why This Source? I chose this source because it provides more info on my chosen topic of health and the built environment. It provides me with another source to utilize when researching my topic. Flaws/Weaknesses A flaw this source has is the fact that it is not a scholarly source. Since it is a blog post, there is no one to moderate or verify the info in the blog post. How is it related?
