The Collaboratory for Research on Urban Neighbourhoods, Community Health and Housing (CRUNCH) is a research network and facilities, housed at McMaster University, dedicated to examining the complex interactions between housing, neighbourhoods and health. Along with our partners in government, the charitable and nonprofit sectors, community groups, and industry, we collaborate on a number of studies that seek to understand neighbourhood-level, population-based health and its social determinants.
