This edition: Military Mystery and MappingTweet
Original tape date: March 17, 2014.
First aired: March 19, 2014.
We start with new reports of suicide in the military. Traditional logic tells us the hell of war would be the cause. But these reports show that even non-deported service members are ramping these statistics up. To discuss, Michael Schoenbaum, senior advisor for mental health at the National Institute of Mental Health of the National Institutes of Health and Paul Reickhoff, founder and CEO of Iraq & Afghanistan Veterans of America.
Then, fighting diabetes at church. In our Public Intellectual segment, where we look at new research with the power to change minds and public policy, a new study evaluates a Bronx health program where 15 churches tried a faith-based route to preventing the disease. Linda Weiss, director of the Center for Evaluation and Applied Research at the New York Academy of Medicine joins us to explain.
Next, supply chain mapping. A website called SourceMap.com tracks complex, global supply chains. Here to discuss, site CEO, Leonardo Bonanni.
And then we map the city with GeoNYC, a Meetup.com group that brings together designers of the latest data mapping technology. To discuss, Alyssa Wright, VP of civic programs at Boundless and Andrew Hill, senior scientist at Vizzuality.
