Dean Nisha Botchwey co-authored the introduction to a special issue of the Journal of the American Planning Association, “Community Design and Revitalization to Promote Health: The Track Record After 20 Years.” 

The issue features articles that scrutinize the implementation and results of interventions promoting public health across the built environment fields. 

Analyzing policies, case studies, pilot programs, and other dimensions of the built environment constructed in communities, cities, and regions in recent years, these special issue articles present the extent to which these interventions have resulted in health improvements in the targeted communities, particularly from an equity perspective.
