Questions like “how’s your social life?” or “did you spend time with family this weekend?” aren’t typically asked during an annual check up at the doctor’s office. Most physicians tailor their questions to how a patient is physically feeling, not the status of their social calendar. But, our guest on this week's Cityscape focuses on how factors like friendship and compassion can lead to a healthier life.

Dr.  Kelli Harding is an assistant clinical professor of psychiatry at Columbia University Irving Medical Center. Her new book is The Rabbit Effect: Live Longer, Happier, and Healthier with the Groundbreaking Science of Kindness. It focuses on the science of human connection rather than traditional biological health.

During the walk, which was completed in June, Frank stayed in homeless shelters and visited veterans facilities. He documented his encounters and is hoping to turn the footage into a documentary. Frank is our guest on this week’s Cityscape.
