Date & Time
Jun 19, 2018 3:00pm EDT
Description

Communities that experience the best health outcomes are characterized by healthy housing, vibrant economies, welcoming green spaces, engaged resident leadership, and access to effective health and social services. How can public health practitioners partner with local housing and community development organizations to create healthy communities? Join national partners County Health Rankings & Roadmaps and NeighborWorks America to explore this question and others during our webinar. Participants will leave the webinar with a greater understanding of how to partner with community development organizations as well as how to engage residents in neighborhood revitalization that builds health equity. You will hear practical strategies from Avenue Community Development Corporation (CDC), a NeighborWorks network organization, to help you get started or take your work to the next level. We encourage you to read Location, Location, Location: County Health Rankings before the webinar and come with your questions.
