GO-ing Forward, NIH- National Center on Minority Health and Health Disparities

This project focuses on adopting a systematic approach to create measures, assess the problem of health inequities in urban environments and develop action plans to reduce health inequities.

 The overall goal of the project is to create a comprehensive health equity surveillance system that will allow to measure health inequities, understand their underlying causes, create effective interventions to reduce them, and assess the impact of action. Among other determinants, emphasis is given to the connection between transportation, urban design and the build environment and health outcomes.
