Associate Professor Xiaoqi Feng, Founding Co-Director of PowerLab at School of Health and Society, has been awarded the Research Award for NSW/ACT Parks and Leisure Australia Awards of Excellence.

The award is for Dr Feng’s research using longitudinal data to understand how much green space is needed to maximise health in children and mums in communities across Australia.

Results of the research are being communicated in the media, used by policymakers and practitioners in local councils and state-wide strategies, national urban-greening campaigns, and in educational programs overseas.
