About ICUPPH

ICUPPH brings together academics, practitioners, students, and community members focused on urban planning and public health. Our goal is to help advance the state of each practice through collaboration. ICUPPH members bring expertise and experience in myriad areas, including but not limited to environmental justice, food systems, healthful affordable housing, residential segregation, urban air quality, and obesity and the built environment.

ICUPPH's activities fall into four main tracks: education, outreach, and research/consulting. The education subcommittee organizes speakers' series, conferences, and seminars that are open to the public. The outreach subcommittee creates opportunities for planners and public health practitioners to connect, and to interact with community-based organizations. The research/consulting subcommittee produces policy and research briefs on relevant topics and engages in contract work that requires technical expertise in both planning and public health.

ICUPPH is advised in its work by faculty members from Northeastern University (Institute on Urban Health Research, Bouve College of Health Sciences), Harvard's School of Public Health and the Harvard Graduate School of Design, the School of Architecture and Planning at MIT, the Tufts University Department of Environmental Policy and Planning, and the Boston University School of Public Health.
