How can we address upstream forces that continue to lead to inequitable access to affordable food?

A new University of Washington initiative is thinking “upstream” when it comes to creating safer, healthier and more livable cities.

Urban@UW aims to bring together UW faculty, staff and students from different disciplines with city decision-makers and citizens to wrestle with urban issues such as housing and poverty, growth and transportation, and food and economic disparity. The program is funded by the UW Office of Research.

Organizers held a recent kick-off event to brainstorm possible pilot research projects that would be funded by Urban@UW. Faculty members from the Schools of Public Health and Social Work were among the more than 150 people who took part.
