A joint endeavor hosted by the UCLA Ziman Center for Real Estate’s Housing as Health Care Initiative, the UCLA Center for Neighborhood Knowledge, the UCLA Center for Health Policy Research and the UCLA Center for Occupational and Environmental Health
“Beyond Zip Codes: Unpacking the Place-Health Nexus”
presented by: Paul Ong, PhD (Research Professor and Director of the UCLA Center for Neighborhood Knowledge)
Place matters, as captured by the statement that asserts that a person’s zip code is a better predictor of health status than the person’s DNA. Social determinants of health are intertwined with the urban spatial structure, residential patterns and the geography of opportunities. This talk explores underlying causal paths that link place characteristics, location accessiblity and transportation resources to health outcomes and systematic disparities.
