2016 Speaker Series

apa sslogo 2016On the Pulse of Planning for Healthy and Equitable Communities

Grab your data, put on your Fitbit, warm up your stethoscope, and join our coalition of community planners, designers, and public health professionals to discuss how to keep our communities vital and fit now and into the future!
Planners and public health officials and practitioners have long understood that community design impacts the health of community members. As the importance of environmental health and equity is increasingly recognized, there are new opportunities for planners, public health professionals, government, and community stakeholders to collaborate on advocating for and creating healthier places while advancing the shared goals of livable, inclusive communities; increased mobility and access to resources; economic vitality and opportunity; and reduced pollution and greenhouse gas emissions. The SacValley APA 2016 Speaker Series will utilize all six sessions to examine how planning and public health can integrate resources and actions to diagnosis, treat, prevent, benchmark, and celebrate the success of communities as they strive to improve the health of their residents, as well as that of their infrastructure and economy. Let us help cure what ails you; register now!

All sessions will be held from 8:30-10:30 a.m.
Join us for coffee & networking from 8:00-8:30 a.m.
