Environmental health (the physical environment and climate change)

We are linking primary data collected from municipalities in Niigata and Miyagi prefectures to JAGES (Japan Gerontological Evaluation Study) and GIS data in order to assess the health impact of the physical environment (access to parks, pathways and grocery stores) on the prevalence of diabetes mellitus in the elderly and their cognitive function.

Using global and planetary health perspectives, we are also researching the health impact of climate change.
