In continuation of the February webinar, we will move upstream in our discussion of the built environment. We will explore how issues related to housing/urban growth/land development can contribute to economic and class segregation and in turn, shape our communities, cultures and other characteristics that influence inequities around chronic disease, mental health and social determinants of health. We will also look at what that means for us as individuals and how it can shape our interactions within our communities.

Description: Join us for a Valentine’s Day discussion about the role of built environment and parks and recreation in public health. Learn how early forward thinking professionals shaped how we look at nature, parks and physical activity in urban areas, and how these early movements set the stage for linking health to the built environment and public parks and rec. Travel through time, looking through a health equity lens, to our current opportunities to connect and collaborate for viable experiences (i.e. physical activity, nutrition, community gardens, obesity prevention, and shade) for the health of our communities. What’s not to love?
