Description: In a political season infused with slander and finger pointing, this series celebrates the accomplishments of young Americans who's passion and innovation are what make America great. Through the lens of fresh young voices, we'll come to understand how far this country has come and how far we have yet to go to truly realize a country we can all be proud to call our own.
Mayor Pete Buttigieg doesn't want to be confined by labels and he's working hard to make sure South Bend isn't either. In a rustbelt economy once labeled as one of America's dying cities, he is re-inventing the city by using the structures of the past to create new business for today.
Baltimore City Health Commissioner, Dr. Leana Wen, is changing the way we view health care. 80% of what determines if a person lives, is not the care they get in a hospital but all of the other factors in their life. Health is about poverty, race, housing, and the environments we live in. We cannot address health without first addressing the disparities in our health care system.
