Description: 

Global Health Institute researchers continue to improve the use of the Integrated Transport & Health Impacts Model, integrating data on air quality, physical activity and more to estimate disease-specific morbidity and mortality. The results will help cities predict the health and climate benefits of smarter land use and planning decisions that promote active transportation, including biking and walking.

Jason Vargo and Maggie Grabow are discussing computer modeling they're refining that integrates data on air quality, physical activity and other factors to estimate disease specific morbidity and mortality.
