Beth Vild, who recently sat down with Tom Crain of The Akron Eco Village Co-op, discussed Health Equity for Akron’s Longevity and Sustainability (HEALS), which is a group working toward holistic health on a sustainable level.
After working with the Way Of Mind and Body (W.O.M.B.) in Akron, Vild started to look into healthy equity, a belief in equal health outcome regardless of neighborhood, income level or race. She noticed food deserts, or areas without healthy food choices, in Akron and wanted to make a change.
Vild believes in a sustainable urban agricultural movement where Akronites can feed one another and make it into an sustainable income. For more information on HEALS Health Equity for Akron’s Longevity and Sustainability, visit www.facebook.com/
