NYU: Neighborhoods and Health: A Progress Report

The NYU Abu Dhabi Institute is hosting “Neighborhoods and Health: A Progress Report” on Wednesday, May 9th from 6:00 to 7:30pm at NYU’s Washington Square campus. The event will include a lecture and discussion on the topic led by Dr. Dustin Duncan, followed by a reception. The field of neighborhoods and health (sometimes referred to as spatial epidemiology) has grown exponentially in the last fifteen years. This lecture aims to: 1) provide an historical overview of neighborhoods and health research, 2) examine recent directions in neighborhoods and health research, 3) touch on methodological areas, and 4) highlight substantive areas in neighborhoods and health research, including quantitative methods in neighborhood health research as well as how neighborhood stigma can influence health disparities. Dr. Dustin Duncan’s research and that of the field of spatial epidemiology is summarized in the revamped second edition of Neighborhoods and Health (Oxford University Press, 2018), which he co-edited with Ichiro Kawachi.
