Sean C. Lucan, MD, MPH, MS

  • Associate Professor, Department of Family and Social Medicine
  • Albert Einstein College of Medicine & Montefiore Health System

"Foods and beverages are nearly ubiquitous today, with placement and promotion of cheap, highly palatable, ultra-processed, convenience and impulse items just about everywhere, even in unexpected places and particularly directed at vulnerable groups.  This talk will examine the measurement—and mismeasurement—of urban food environments, with implications for future research, health disparities, and community health"
