Canadian Urban Environmental Health Research Consortium (CANUE) - Measuring Walkability and Urban Sprawl: Opportunities and Challenges

Topics: Built Environment Location: General, Canada

Urban form is associated with health behaviours, including physical activity, and health outcomes, including diabetes. A challenge with conducting studies examining the association between the urban form and health is that there are no national scale indicators for concepts like walkability and sprawl. This webinar will discuss the potential of national walkability and urban sprawl indices recently developed by CANUE members as well as challenges for their use to study associations with health outcomes.
