Louisville has a problem with health. Out of the 50 biggest cities in the United States, Louisville comes in last for overall health. This isn’t a simple issue — but Insider Louisville takes a look at the underlying causes of what’s making Louisville so unhealthy in Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3.

In “A Picture of Bad Health: Part 4,” we highlight the most important points from the first three parts, and we discuss the next steps for local government and Louisville citizens.

“A Picture of Bad Health” is a documentary from Insider Louisville on public health issues and inequity in Louisville. This video is the final part, Part 4: What’s Next. With questions or comments, please contact the reporter at: [email protected]
