Building Healthy Communities

Around the world, communities face pressing health challenges related to the built environment. This 5 minute video encourages individuals, organizations, governments and private developers to collaborate and build healthy communities.

“Builders, urban planners, architects and transportation leaders are health professionals. They don’t think of themselves as white coat folks, they don’t think of themselves as health professionals but… they have more impact on the health of Americans than the people in the hospitals waiting for people to walk through the door.” Dr. Richard Jackson, UCLA School of Public Health
