To encourage partnerships and collaboration, bring one partner from another department or organization in your community for FREE! (you must register together). Fee waivers will be considered for public agencies and non-profit organizations on a case-by-case basis.
Who should attend: Anyone working on community-based strategies for improving health (including physical activity and active transportation, open space initiatives, food access and healthy food, zoning and land use). The workshop is designed for planners, architects, engineers, public health practitioners, health care providers, elected officials, community organization representatives, and advocates who are ready to start or advance this work in their community.
Participants can expect to leave with a "next steps" plan of action tailored to your community or project’s specific needs.
