MCIC is in the early planning stages to design an index for the retail food environment in Chicago.  MCIC will consider population density, all current food establishments, transportation and walk access to determine areas of the City that require enhancements to the food retail environment.  MCIC is undertaking this work via a partnership with the City of Chicago and the Consortium to Lower Obesity in Chicago’s Children.
