The concept of a healthy community may be a bit different during the pandemic from what it was in "normal" times. It's not just that people want a healthy community in the medical sense, they also want to live in places that are a pleasure to live in, places where their children and even grandchildren might want to move or stay.

And he sits for an interview to discuss some of the principles in his approach.
