About The Urban Health and Housing Hub

Our Mission

To work alongside community members to conduct research that helps bridge the gap between public health and urban planning in order to direct change in our built environments towards benefiting individuals, rather than harming them. 

Who We Are

At the Urban Health and Housing Hub, we utilize innovative research methods, including realist evaluations and concept mapping, to develop conceptual frameworks linking complex interventions to health. We are interested in the built environment, urban health, public policy, health equity and community development. With all of our research projects and programs, we value community—the driver that makes programs successful and sustainable.
