Could a greener city mean a healthier you?

As part of the Green Heart Project, the University of Louisville’s HEAL Study is a unique, first-of-its-kind study examining the relationship between a neighborhood’s greenness and the health of its residents. We’re planting thousands of trees, shrubs, and grasses in your neighborhood to determine if this positive step:

  • Reduces air pollution levels
  • Decreases risk of heart disease, diabetes, and obesity
  • Increases participation in outdoor activities and sense of community
  • Reduces stress levels

Please complete the following short survey to see if you may qualify for the HEAL Study.
