More than half of the world’s population lives in urban areas. By the year 2030, this will have increased to two-thirds. Urban living is a ubiquitous exposure for health. The day will bring together scholars from across the world to discuss the challenges and opportunities associated with creating health in urban contexts. Presenters will also discuss methods that can advance urban health scholarship and feature case studies from cities that have invested in population health, synthesizing the state of the science of urban health. Cohosted with Boston University Initiative on Cities and Yale Institute for Global Health.
