Between the three readings, there is an understanding that social capital, social inequities, and the built environment play a vital role in our health and health outcomes. At the intersection of these three concepts are our communities and neighborhoods. Using the assigned readings, describe your neighborhood and community. Describe linkages between the social environment and the built environment (e.g. having sidewalks or parks in a neighborhood.) How does your environment align with concepts of social capital? What role does the ‘built environment’ play a role in health and health outcomes in your community?
