"Louisville Kentucky's urban laboratory is embarking on a study of how environmental differences within the city's neighborhoods give rise to health disparities, and how local social networks and personal environments created by lifestyle choices bear upon individual health and well-being. This study will specifically examine the impact that urban forests and green spaces have on cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk. While previous studies have shown that exposure to air pollutants like those found in urban areas increases CVD risk and mortality, the impact of the urban forest and overall green spaces on CVD has not been directly assessed. This presentation will discuss the pragmatic, interventional trial known as The Green Heart Project, designed to test the hypothesis that exposure to neighborhood greenery diminishes CVD risk by decreasing the levels of local air pollution."
