HEAL Alumni Profile: Dr. Janet Loebach
Dr. Janet Loebach from Cornell University shares her work, research, and graduate experience with the HEAL. Janet completed her PhD in Geography with Dr. Jason Gilliland at the HEAL in 2013. Janet joined the HEAL as a Project Manager in 2007, where she focused on children’s perception and use of their everyday environments, and the socio-environmental factors which influence children’s behaviour and well-being. During her studies with the HEAL, she examined children’s perception and use of their neighbourhood environments for health activity. With the HEAL’s connection to the practice of community geography, she was uniquely positioned for a role as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Design and Environmental Analysis at Cornell University in New York State.
