Interdisciplinary researchers lead a workshop that explores how urban design shapes what we eat, how much we exercise, and more. 

During this workshop three interdisciplinary researchers will share the latest insights on how place influences our diets, physical activity, and health, using novel techniques such as GIS and GPS. After reviewing the evidence, participants will discuss policies and techniques that can be used to change behavior and improve outcomes through placemaking, planning, and other city-building tools.
