Defining Our Local Public Health Roles: A workshop

What role does a local health district have in addressing complex issues involving: global warming, community design, carbon footprint, sidewalks, transportation, local agriculture, and so on.   Come and participate in a workshop to discuss and learn more about the relationship between these issues and public health, learn about what public health departments are doing in other parts of the country and help us to begin to develop a strategic plan for each Health district for action. The workshop will be lead by Adele Houghton, AIA, LEED, AP and President of Adele Houghton Consulting LLC.  Her firm provides strategic consulting services dedicated to advancing the public health co-benefits of sustainability, and helps clients tailor sustainability initiatives to improve the health of building occupants and the surrounding community.
