NIH Grant Awarded for Environmental Health Research

Jonathan Chipman and Xun Shi are part of a large multidisciplinary team recently awarded a $42 million National Institute of Health grant.  The project, led by Margaret Karagas of the Geisel School, will assess environmental influences on child health.  Geography's Shi and Chipman will be using geospatial data to study the health effects of exposure to "greenspace" and other aspects of the natural and built environment through which children move during their daily lives.  For more information:
