Making Cities Healthy

CPHHS research seminar

Friday, November 17, 2017 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM

Suzanne H. Crowhurst Lennard, PhD, is Co-founder and Director of the International Making Cities Livable Conferences, LLC, and Co-Founder & Executive Director of Child-Friendly Communities.

Suzanne's work concerns the social, cultural and psychological aspects of architecture, urban design and city-making, clarifying how the built environment affects social interaction, health and quality of everyday life.

Her studies encompass making cities livable for children, youth and the elderly; the relationship between physical health, social health, and the built environment; walkability, bikeability and transit; and balanced transportation planning to enhance health, social life, and community.

Through case studies of numerous European cities that have been implementing innovative approaches to land use planning, transportation planning, housing, architecture, urban space design and sustainability, she has identified strategies and successful solutions that contribute to creating livable cities.

Suzanne has received awards from the National Endowment for the Arts, the Royal Institute of British Architects, New York State Council on the Arts, Gladys Kriebel Delmas Foundation, and the Graham Foundation for Fine Arts.

She has her BA degree from Bristol University, England, and a Masters and PhD in Human Aspects of Architecture and Urban Design from the University of California, Berkeley.

She is co-author of 5 books that summarize this work and she has published numerous articles in professional journals. 



The college-wide research seminar is Co-Sponsored by the College Research Office; the Hallie Ford Center; the Center for Healthy Aging; the Moore Family Center for Whole Grain Foods, Nutrition and Preventive Health; and the Center for Global Health.

The seminar series provides a forum for faculty in the College of Public Health & Human Sciences and other researchers to present and discuss current research topics in an environment conducive to stimulating research collaboration and fostering student learning. Faculty and students from the Division of Health Sciences and other colleges, research centers and institutions are encouraged to participate.

We also encourage you to attend this Friday’s Music A La Carte: “Ann Kosanovic-Brown (Bassoon) in recital” to enjoy a Friday with both Art & Science!
