Services We Provide
Connection Between Health and the Built Environment
The health of communities is linked to land use design, planning and transportation. Obesity, chronic diseases, violence, safety, social and mental health, air and water quality and health disparities are but a few of the public health issues affected by the form and character of the built environment.
There are evidence-based land use and transportation policies and practices that promote health and safety. We combine expert technical assistance with exceptional and affordable services for high impact results.
