Subject: Lunch, Other with Health & Urban Design & Transportation Expert
Anne Vernez Moudon will be on campus October 6. She is an expert
researcher in the area at the intersection of transportation and health
and urban design and directs the Urban Form lab at the University of
Washington. There are two talks that day, a round-table at the TRC at
11:00 and a Burack Lecture at Waterman 413A at 4:00, titled:
*/Physical Activity and Travel: How Land Use and Transportation Can
Contribute to Better Health /*
There are spaces for lunch (12:30 Waterman) and time for a possible
short meeting in the early afternoon. Please let me know if interested
in attending one of these events or in joining us for lunch that day --
let me know soon as space is limited. Feel free to pass on to other
faculty you know would be interested, and please announce in your
classes, if appropriate.
Following is a link to her web page and a short bio.

Institutes of Health, and local agencies.
Dr. Moudon has published many articles in urban design, transportation,
and public health journals. Her books include /Built for Change:
Neighborhood Architecture in San Francisco/ (MIT Press 1986), /Public
Streets for Public Use/ (Columbia University Press 1991), and
/Monitoring Land Supply with Geographic Information Systems/ (with M.
Hubner, John Wiley & Sons, 2000).
