What are the components of healthy community? When it comes to a group what does health mean? How do you meaasure health? How do you move toward health?

These are all important concepts that people have been trying to solve for generations. Today the tools are different and perhaps even the definitions.

Through the USC California Endowment Health Journalism Fellowship, I plan to write about how safe places in a community are tied to emotional and physical health.When people feel secure and happy in their environment, they are healthier.

Where are these spaces in South LA and how can they be increased? How does the community define a safe place? How can they help create more? How can they be coaxed into using ones that are already available?
