Squires, "Ecological Associations Between Inclusionary Zoning Policies and Cardiovascular Disease Risk Prevalence " which was published by the medical journal Circulation, was the subject of an editorial in Psychology Today, September 20. In this, the author notes 3 key takeaways from their research.
1. Municipalities with more affordable housing tend to see better heart health among their residents.
