Summaries

Summary Sentence: This month's topic: Children walk to schools

Full Summary: The Healthy Places Research Group is an informal gathering of people interested in the intersection of health and the built environment.

The Healthy Places Research Group is an informal gathering of people interested in the intersection of health and the built environment. An effort of Georgia Tech, Emory University, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Group was formed in 2003 to establish a multidisciplinary dialogue about how places impact public health.

In January, Ken Powell, Public Health and Epidemiologic Consultant; Matt Falb, Epidemiologist, Georgia Division of Public Health; and Tony Giarusso, Center for GIS, Georgia Tech will talk about a project that is estimating the percentage of children in Georgia living within a safe and reasonable walking distance from school using census and school data and GIS and analytic software.
