Brief description Green spaces (e.g. parks and tree canopy) may help reduce – and narrow socioeconomic inequities - in the risk of Alzheimer’s by improving mental health and cognition, promoting physical activity and social support, reducing social isolation, reducing depression, obesity, cardiometabolic disease risk and buffering harms from traffic-related air pollution. I will conduct the first large-scale longitudinal studies to examine this hypothesis across a 15-year timespan.
