Neighborhoods and Health, second edition

Congratulations to Ichiro Kawachi and Dustin Duncan, SD ’11 on the new edition of the textbook, Neighborhoods and Health.

In 2003, Neighborhoods and Health (edited by Ichiro Kawachi & Lisa Berkman) codified the idea that a neighborhood’s social and physical makeup can influence the health of people who live in it.

More than a decade later, with the relationship between place and health firmly entrenched at the center of how we understand public health, this second edition of the textbook offers both a synthesis of the essential research and a practical overview of the methods used in spatial epidemiology.
