In this class, we will explore the influence of place on population health, including physical environment (e.g., air, water, soil, food), built environment (e.g., neighborhood structure, traffic, green space), social environment (e.g., cohesion, safety, deprivation, segregation), and legal and civic structure (e.g., policy, law, representation). We will also learn to implement (and critique) methodologic approaches that are particularly adapted to understanding how individuals and places interact, specifically multilevel thinking and modeling, and spatial analytic methods.
