Where and how we live has long been recognized as important in the transmission of disease and exposure to harmful substances that effect our health. What has been less understood is how place contributes to chronic diseases such as type II diabetes, cognitive issues, obesity, cardiovascular disease, and certain cancers. Using new assessment methods and a suite of bio-metric and environmental sensors, researchers at UW-Madison working together with physicians from IU Melvin Bren Simon Cancer Center, have developed a new way of understanding and helping to treat these often deadly diseases. Its by making use of peoples local environments and by understanding the metrics of how environments contribute to poor health and reduced quality of life. Dr. Sledge will talk about how this new approach was developed and how it is changing the ways we view and treat these diseases.
