Building Healthy, Equitable Communities Through Comprehensive Long-Range Planning

August 21, 2018 - 11:00am to 11:45am

ChangeLab Solutions will be hosting this webinar - Building Healthy, Equitable Communities Through Comprehensive Long-Range Planning, in which they'll explore the interconnected elements of healthy places. We kicked off the conversation by blogging about generations of laws and policies that are behind today's place-based health disparities. Now we invite you to join for this webinar, in which we'll look at building health and equity into long-range plans by discussing

  • How place-based strategies are central to health equity
  • A framework categorizing the elements of healthy places
  • How to organize long-range plans using health equity concepts

This webinar will feature Moses Gates of the Regional Plan Association, who will discuss how equity was integrated into the design and implementation of the Fourth Regional Plan, a roadmap to achieving greater equity, shared prosperity, better health, and sustainability throughout the New York metropolitan region. Our experts will examine what makes place-based planning and investment such an effective practice for promoting health equity. In addition, the panelists will address your questions and discuss hot topics that emerged from the blog and webinar.
