If there's one thing we know about life expectancy in the US, it's that wealthy communities have long life expectancies and poor communities have shorter life expectancies. That is true even down to the neighborhood level, where in some cities life expectancy can differ by as much as 30 years between neighborhoods just a few miles apart. The connection between wealthy communities and health is virtually ironclad but researchers have found much greater variability among poorer areas, where some communities far exceed their peers in terms of health outcomes and length of life. Experts will tell you that “place matters"—but they can’t tell you exactly why.
In Season 3 of Century Lives, we hit the road, visiting poor and working-class communities that punch above their weight when it comes to healthy aging and life expectancy. In some ways, the communities have little in common—they are urban and rural; Black, White, and Latino—but they have all achieved longer life and better health. Join us to learn the stories and secrets of these communities—and how longer life can become more equitable across the United States.

is this doctor so uninformed, so easily influenced by the ratings driven media, that he believes that black men and women have to worry about our children being hunted by racist cops? I tell my kids just because they're black doesn't mean they are in danger of being needlessly slain by police officer during routine traffic stops. even in worst case scenario, say for instance a cop who's looking to provoke, it is foolish for anyone, regardless of race, to allow pride to govern their response to the provocation of said cop. remain respectful, compliant, sign the ticket, and go about your day. I am also quick to remind my children that nearly every high profile death at the hands of a police officer begins with a suspect who is resisting arrest either because of an outstanding warrant or the offense currently being charged. I also remind my children that statistically they are dozens of things they do on a daily basis that, based on the statistics, they're constantly participating in dozens of activities we all consider harmless and routine but are in fact many times more deadly than interacting with a police officer. My son and daughter know that we do not accept excuses in our house, not even from their friends and teammates, especially if the excuses have anything to do with the shade human we happen to be. Look, regardless of how things were around me, I knew as a teenager, my choices would affect my adult life and thus the lives of my future children. My choices, not the color of their skin. 100% equality among everyone is an impossible thing to achieve, even if everyone was the same color and everyone went to the same exact school, raised by the same exact parents. Because people are born with different attributes, be it physical or mental, Even siblings raised in the same household have advantages and disadvantages when compared to each other. People who MAKE A CHOICE to actively practice gratitude and focus on what they can control, while spending little time contemplating how unfair life is, are far more likely to live a happy life. One of meaning and responsibility, goals set and achieved. most of my relatives who lived in the segregated south prior to the Major advances in civil rights of the late 20th century would laugh at any young black man or woman who live in today's America, yet still cling to their perceived victimhood.
