Health in Cities

Cities are home to the majority of the world’s population. The urban context of much of modern life has made the study of cities a natural focus for many branches of scientific inquiry across the disciplines. At the University of Chicago, dozens of researchers and multiple research organizations study health in cities, with emphases including poverty, education, health care, environmental quality and crime. These problems are clearly interconnected, in theory, in data and in analytical methods. Accordingly, an integrated approach to these problems is likely to be critical to finding the most effective solutions.

The purpose of this conference, organized by the Center for Heath and the Social Sciences, is to connect individuals and organizations by sharing new insights from the University’s research on Health in Cities, important questions and challenges that remain unaddressed, and practical aspirations for collaboration to develop new solutions to the problems of health in cities. This will spur an ongoing exchange of ideas that will span the university and engage key stakeholders locally, nationally and internationally to explore the most relevant and effective means to understand and improve health in cities.
