How Health in all Policies Creates Healthy Communities

Monday, November 2, 2015: 10:30 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.
To examine how to better meet the housing and service needs of older adults and persons living with disabilities, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development collaborated with the Health Impact Project and other partners, on a health impact assessment (HIA) prior to updating the designated public housing rule. It is hoped that the revised federal rule will encourage public housing authorities to consider health factors that play a role in the well-being of a community when they develop their designated housing plans. Recommendations from the HIA will be shared as well as considerations for communicating HIA findings.
Session Objectives: Discuss the use of health impact assessments in advancing public health. Discuss the Association of State and Territorial Health Officials (ASTHO) 2014-2015 President’s Challenge: Healthy Aging: Living Longer Better. Explain the use of health impact assessment in the Boone Boulevard Green Street Project. Explain how health in all policies creates healthy communities.
