Built Environment Approaches for Improving Community Health
Sponsored by the American Public Health Association
Thursday, May 9th, 1:30 - 2:30 p.m. (EDT) - webinar

Meeting Description:
The built environment — our neighborhoods and communities where we live, learn, work and play — has an impact on physical activity levels, access to healthy food, transportation behaviors and, ultimately, health outcomes. This webinar will feature two counties that have taken different approaches to changing the built environment around them in order to improve the health of their communities. Public health and development officials from Kane County, Ill., will describe their model for collaborative public policy planning and implementation and discuss the implementation of their 2040 Master Plan, which fully integrates public health into land use and transportation decisions. Representatives from Manatee County Health Department in Florida will discuss the development of a Complete Streets policy to reduce pedestrian and bicycling injuries and increase opportunities for biking and walking.

Recording and slides will be available within one week of the event.
