Poster Title
Greenness is Associated with Decreased Mortality Risk in Cancer Patients
Abstract
I used Cox Proportional Hazard Models, satellite estimates of county-level greenness, and a cohort of almost 6 million cancer patients and survivors to show that living in an area with a higher level of greenness is associated with lower mortality risk. Omitting air pollution does not confound greenness estimates.
