Bloustein alum Jasmine Jones-Bynes selected for ULI/Randall Lewis Health Mentorship Program

September 11, 2019

Jasmine Jones-Bynes, EJB ’18 (Urban Planning & Design), is one of five graduate students selected to participate in the 2019–2020 ULI/Randall Lewis Health Mentorship Program.

Jasmine is currently in the master of city and regional planning program at the Georgia Institute of Technology, where she is focusing on transportation and health/environmental planning. She graduated with high honors from the Bloustein School

Jasmine is passionate about the impact of the built environment, particularly parks and streets, on health disparities among low-income and minority communities. She is a graduate research assistant at the Healthy Places Laboratory within the College of Design at Georgia Tech. In this role, she provides data analysis and project management support to research and publications on issues of the built environment and health. Jasmine is a volunteer health coach with Grady Hospital’s Walk the Line program. In this role, she co-leads a weekly walking group on the Westside Trail of the Atlanta BeltLine. Prior to serving as a mentee with the ULI/Randall Lewis Health Mentorship Program, Jasmine interned with the Federal Highway Administration’s Office of Planning, Environment, and Realty assessing National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) compliance. Jasmine aspires to start a joint urban planning and public health consulting firm after graduation.

The ULI/Randall Lewis Health Mentorship Program, generously supported by ULI Foundation Governor Randall Lewis, supports learning and sharing about health and real estate among graduate students and ULI members. In addition to being matched with a ULI full member mentor based on professional interests, mentees earned the opportunity to attend the 2019 ULI Fall Meeting in Washington, D.C., and the 2020 ULI Spring Meeting in Toronto, where they will experience product council meetings and health-focused programming alongside their mentors.
