The GREAT Study

 

The findings of the Green Rehabilitation of Elder Apartment Treatments: The GREAT Study have been published in the Journal of Public Health. The paper, Self-Reported Health Outcomes Associated With Green-Renovated Public Housing Among Primarily Elderly Residents, follows the study which assessed the impact of sustainable building renovations on residents. The study found that green renovation has a positive impact on mental health of residents when compared to a similar population.
