Health Promoting Urban Design: Dr. Emily Rugel
Feb 07, 2020 Season 1 Episode 6
Dr. Emily Rugel /Gillian McCormick, Susannah Steers

Emily Rugel PhD speaks with us about smart city planning that includes natural spaces to not only enhance our mental health but to treat mental health disorders. 

About Dr. Emily Rugel:

Emily Jessica Rugel recently received her doctorate from UBC's School of Population & Public Health, where her dissertation developed a comprehensive model of natural spaces across metro Vancouver and applied it to prescription data and to health surveys that have assessed social ties and mental health. More broadly, her work explores health-promoting urban design, with the aim of developing scientific evidence that can be embedded in sustainability plans and in policies that advance equity. She has remained in academia as a postdoctoral fellow in the Faculty of Forestry, but firmly believes in the acquisition of knowledge through chance encounters as well as classroom instruction.
