Abstract This study examines the persistent impacts of historical racebased discriminatory housing policies on contemporary urban environments in the United States. Specifically, we examine the relationships between Home Owners' Loan Corporation (HOLC) grades assigned to neighborhoods in the 1930s and the current distribution of tree canopy and level of exposure to air pollution hazards. Our results indicate a clear gradient in tree canopy by HOLC grade, with better neighborhood grades associate...

Abstract Sedentary lifestyles contribute to many adverse health outcomes and pose concerns for public health worldwide. Studies show that road network design and greenery are critical, independent factors in supporting active lifestyles. Yet greenery along the road network has been insufficiently assessed. This study modelled individual weekly participation in active transportation (AT) using spatially refined measures of street versus overall neighborhood greenery in greater Milwaukee and Green...

Abstract Background There is a growing epidemic of cancer and other non-communicable diseases in sub-Saharan Africa. Targeted, specific, cost-effective strategies are needed to manage the growing burden of cancer. In high-resource settings, geospatial analysis has transformed cancer control through geographic targeting of interventions and policies. A similar approach could improve cancer control in sub-Saharan Africa; however, georeferenced cancer data and increased geospatial research capacity...

Abstract The purpose of this study was to explore environmental health perspectives among urban youth. A total of 12 focus groups with 64 youth were conducted. Youth defined environmental health in a multidimensional manner which integrated aspects of the physical, social, and built environment and concentrated on the neighborhood context. A theme of environmental health resilience factors and sub-themes of safety, trust, engagement, leadership, and representation were identified and described. ...

Abstract Introduction Adequate sleep duration and quality are protective against many adverse health outcomes. Many individual-level predictors of poor sleep have been examined, but few studies have examined neighborhood-level influences. Despite known associations between neighborhood green space and sleep influencing factors (eg, physical activity, mental health), few studies have examined green space and sleep's relationship. Furthermore, little work has examined the relationship between the ...
