Healthy Places GSD is a student group uncovering the agency of planning and design practitioners to promote healthier communities. We take an equity-focused and cross-disciplinary approach, bringing together students and faculty across campus with practitioners to raise the visibility of research, projects, and advocacy on health and the built environment. Our group hosts panel discussions, hands-on workshops, and on-the-ground site visits to further our shared knowledge and skills.
