CRP Professor Ann Forsyth recently published an article with Mary Hearst, J. Michael Oakes, and Kathryn H. Schmitz, "Does Residential Density Increase Walking and Other Physical Activity?" in Urban Studies (44, 4: 679-697). A second article by the same team, “Design and Destinations: Factors Influencing Walking and Other Physical Activity”, will appear soon in the same journal. Forsyth is a Co-Principal Investigator on a recently-awarded NIH-funded grant, Project EAT-III, Eating Among Teens and Young Adults, directed by Professor Dianne Neumark-Sztainer at the University of Minnesota. She is also participating in a National Cancer Institute working group on nutrition measures, focusing on the neighborhood food environment.
