DHPE's Deputy Director, Pam Eidson, MEd attended the Healthy Communities Roundtable October 12, 2012 at Pew Charitable Trusts, Washington, DC.  The Healthy Communities Roundtable was the brainchild of three people at the YMCA of the USA.

This round table provides the opportunity to explore the work others are doing around creating healthy communities.  As Pam mentions, it's an "in-person LinkedIn" to discover organizational and personal passions around healthy communities.

Presentations were given on ACHIEVE, CDC & APHA work on CTG, National League of Cities.  Long discussion occurred on public messaging around food and National School Lunch Week  (October 15).

Anna Ricklin at the American Planning Association authored a blog post, which links to a release of a free report from APA's Planning and Community Health Research Center evaluating how comprehensive and sustainability plans from around the country have addressed public health.

The next meeting will be in the spring.
