Community impact for built environment focusing on outcomes

The Walk the Talk (WTT) project evaluated how the built and social environments are associated with older adult mobility – the physical capacity to walk or move within communities. The WTT program of research includes numerous integrated research projects – from a cross-sectional study of low-income older adults from the Greater Vancouver area1,2,3,4,5, a longitudinal (4 years) qualitative interview and mixed methods study of low income older adults from the Greater Vancouver area, scoping reviews, mobility enhancing intervention programs, and participatory action initiatives. Taken together, the WTT team created a rich and expansive data set for which to describe how older adults experience mobility, health and the built and social environments.
