Sara Metcalf a geography professor and systems scientist who conducts research on urban health and sustainability.

Metcalf's urban health research is supported by an NIH-funded project to model a community-based intervention designed to improve health for low-income Chinese Americans living in New York City. This line of research has also been supported by an NIH-funded project to model health-promoting interventions integrating primary and oral health screening for older adults in underserved community settings. Another part of her urban health research is a study of how grey (built environment) and green (natural environment) urban infrastructure may be integrated to promote the health and well-being of city residents.
