Acolin Awarded NIH R21 Grant to Study Gentrification, Mobility, and Health

Arthur Acolin, Associate Professor and Bob Filley Endowed Chair in the Runstad Department of Real Estate, was recently awarded an NIH R21 grant for his project entitled ‘Gentrification, Mobility, and Exposure to Contextual Determinants of Health.’

The project will examine how gentrification affects mobility patterns at the neighborhood levels and changes exposure to contextual determinants of health that have been shown to contribute to social and race/ethnic inequalities in health. The proposed research leverages consumer trace data from Data Axle that have broad population coverage and high temporal and spatial specificity to further our understanding of gentrification, mobility, and health disparities.
