“Beyond Zip Codes: Unpacking the Place-Health Nexus”

Place matters, as captured by the statement that asserts that a person’s zip code is a better predictor of health status than the person’s DNA. Social determinants of health are intertwined with the urban spatial structure, residential patterns and the geography of opportunities.  This talk explores underlying causal paths that link place characteristics, location accessiblity and transportation resources to health outcomes and systematic disparities.
