Public Health Interests
Current Public-Health Related Activities
My work in land use and public health has focused in two areas: local policy and education. I am particularly interested in how local governments, urban, rural or otherwise, can use policy to improve health outcomes for community members and how community members can advocate for specific policy outcomes. I currently have a hand in work related to urban agriculture (youth advocacy and community food access), as well as hydraulic fracturing in Pennsylvania with the Environmental Health Project and how public health is factored into local policy decisions for UNGD.
