    Learn About Health And The Built Environment In The March Webinar

    Register Here


    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.
