Volume 76, No. 7 March 2014
In this month’s
cover feature,
“Health and
Housing Out-
comes From
Green Renovation
of Low-Income
Housing in
Washington,
DC,” the authors
investigated the
connection between health outcomes and
environmentally conscious renovation of
apartments in the nation’s capital. They found
significant improvements from baseline to one
year after renovation in health, housing, and
allergens. The authors’ results suggest that
widespread implementation of green housing
principles will likely result in substantial
health gains and housing improvements,
especially for low-income at-risk populations
where disparities are most pronounced. The
housing pictured on our cover is from a similar
project in Chicago, the Rosa Parks Apartments
in the West Humboldt Park neighborhood.
That project was also completed with green
principles in mind.
