HPRG: Nutrition environment in communities

Primary tabs

Healthy Places is a term that refers to buildings, neighborhoods, and even entire metropolitan areas. It explores and evaluates how we can develop, design, build, and manage places that promote good health, support values, and restore vitality to communities.

The Healthy Places Research Group (HPRG) is a collaborative effort involving Emory University's Rollins School of Public Health, Georgia Tech's College of Architecture, and the Center for Quality Growth and Regional Development. It also involves professionals from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), researchers, students, and others interested in exploring the co-relationship between the built environment and the health of communities.

The HPRG meets once a month to discuss issues and exchange information pertaining to health policy and impacts. Participation is open to anyone interested in exploring the characteristics and advancement of healthy places.

This month's speaker will be Karen Glanz, Ph.D., M.P.H, of Emory University. She will be talking about measures to evaluate the nutrition environment in communities.
