Healthy People, Healthy Places

Monthly peer networking panel on April 20

Human health is impacted by the way we build our cities. 

Increasing opportunities to walk and bike, spend time in nature, and interact with our communities helps people lead healthier lives overall. 

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; Elliott Barnett, City of Tacoma; Keri Moore, Snohomish Health District; Ngozi Oleru, Public Health – Seattle & King County Rad Cunningham, Washington State Department of Health; and Karl Pepple, EPA.
