About this meeting

Description: Chronic diseases are the most significant health epidemic of our time and societal costs are on the rise. But the news is not all bad. Human health is impacted by the health of the natural environment, the strength of our region’s communities and social networks, jobs and education, transportation systems, and the way we build our cities. These links put public health professionals, land use and transportation planners on the front lines of the fight against chronic disease. Innovative collaborations are helping to improve health outcomes and equity, and to maintain and improve the region’s quality of life and environmental and economic sustainability. 

Please join us for a discussion on how communities are planning for health, including case studies from communities in our region. Learn about the Washington Tracking Network, a statewide health indicators online data portal. This session will include presentations from several public health professionals followed by a group discussion. Attendees are encouraged to share their insights on how we can all work together for collective impact.

Speakers: Marianne Seifert, Tacoma-Pierce County Health Department; Amy Pow, Tacoma Pierce County Health Department; Keri Moore, Snohomish Health District; Crystal Nuno, Kitsap Public Health District; Julie West, Public Health – Seattle & King County; Amy Shumann, Public Health – Seattle & King County; and Rad Cunningham, Washington State Department of Health.
