Please note: this Fireside Chat will start at 2:00 PM Eastern Time
This Fireside Chat will provide an overview of the Ottawa Neighbourhoods study, designed to use GIS methodology to define natural neighbourhoods, and to measure and map features of the urban landscape that contribute to health and to health inequalities.
The Ottawa Neighbourhoods Study involved mapping indicators of the natural environment, the built environment, goods, services, and amenities (including the food environment) by neighbourhood SES and health outcomes.
Discussions will consider indicators and health outcomes and thus, implications for community design and development.
