In this seminar, Joreintje will share some of her recent insights into the relationships between aspects of the social (e.g. income inequality, social cohesion) and physical environment (e.g. recreational areas, food environment) with lifestyle behaviours and mental and physical health. Joreintje uses geospatial analysis to link environmental factors to behaviour and health outcomes and investigates the mechanisms through which environments influence these outcomes.
Dr. Joreintje Mackenbach is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics at the Amsterdam UMC. She has co-authored over 45 publications and is the recipient of a grant to investigate the impact of unhealthy food environments. She is also co-founder of the Upstream Team, a network of researchers and policy makers focused on the upstream environmental determinants of lifestyle behaviours and disease outcomes.
