A community's health is shaped by the environment—social, economic, natural, and built. Community Health is not zero-sum; each of these domains can and must strengthen the other. I will focus on built environment effects.

Learning Areas:
Environmental health sciences
Public health or related public policy

Learning Objectives:
Demonstrate that health improvement must occur across environmental domains and the importance of the built environment.
