On October 6th PlanH collaborated with members of the Healthy Built Environment Alliance on an introductory webinar describing the foundations for linking health and the built environment. This webinar was an invited session for a cohort of public health professionals in BC Health Authorities, who are embarking on a training program over the next several months. We are excited to now share the resources from this webinar with others who are interested in foundational information about the ‘what and why’ of linking health and the built environment, what it means to have a healthy built environment, how it impacts health issues in B.C., and opportunities for playing a role and collaborating with others to create healthier communities.
