Summary: (CIT): It is well established that place matters with respect to health and health outcomes. In studies of behavioral health, including violence, alcohol and other drug use, and mental health there is growing evidence that environmental risk is a strong predictor of behavior in highly disordered environments and may be a more salient predictor of high-risk behavior than individual-level risk factors. The field of health equity research has been defined as the study of the context where people live, work and play and experience health. Essential to the inquiry of health equity are understandings of how the environment shapes and influences opportunities for optimal (or sub-optimal) health as well as structural and policy interventions to address features of the built and social environment to promote behavioral health. Specific examples will be provided of innovative environmental assessment methods that offer the most resolute and policy-relevant approaches to characterizing the environment and environmental risk. In addition, recent examples from current policy-based research and implementation efforts to reduce alcohol outlet-density and expand behavioral health services in Baltimore City will be provided. This action-oriented research builds on recent advancements in the field of geographic information systems and offers promising new lines of research, service and advocacy in the field of health equity research.
