The Atlantic's Community Health tour, underwritten by GSK, made its second stop in St. Louis today, December 12, where they gathered leaders currently working on the frontlines of community health; doctors, educators, legislators, community leaders, and advocates. The Atlantic hosted Jackie Joyner-Kersee – one of the most famous and decorated U.S. Olympians in Track and Field history – as the subject of our headline interview. Born in East St. Louis, Joyner-Kersee has dedicated much of her life since retiring as an athlete to the Jackie Joyner-Kersee Foundation, which works to improve community health in St. Louis's poorest neighborhoods.
