Ron Sims, former Deputy Dir. of HUD, on equity planning strategies

Ron Sims will speak at The City Club of Cleveland on Tuesday, Nov. 29 at noon, where he will discuss how communities can advance health equity through land use planning and how government and business leaders, local planners, developers, public health officials, philanthropic organizations and community representatives can work together to incorporate the role of ?place-based strategies? into their work. This presentation is the second in the ?Why Place Matters? speaker?s series the Foundation is sponsoring in conjunction with the Cuyahoga County PLACE MATTERS team.

PLACE MATTERS is a nationwide initiative of the Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies, Health Policy Institute, to build the capacity of community leaders to address social, economic and environmental conditions in communities that shape health and health outcomes.

PLACE MATTERS is designed to improve the health outcomes of participating communities ? including Cuyahoga County ? through shared learning experiences. The program assists participating teams in developing and implementing community-based strategies to address the social factors that determine health.
