Maggie Grabow, a Ph.D. candidate in Environment and Resources also pursuing the Certificate on Humans and the Global Environment, received a student poster award at the 2012 International Society for Environmental Epidemiology (ISEE) conference in August.

Grabow’s poster was titled "Air Quality and Exercise-Related Health Benefits of Reduced Car Travel in the Midwestern United States."

The International Society for Environmental Epidemiology provides a forum for the discussion of problems unique to the study of health and the environment. The annual conference is the key international meeting for environmental epidemiologists.

Grabow is advised by Jonathan Patz, professor of environmental studies and population health sciences and director of the UW-Madison Global Health Institute. Her general research interests include how the built environment affects health.
