Research shows the built environment can have a strong influence on people’s health. For example, the lack of sidewalks and bicycle or walking paths contributes to sedentary habits, which can lead to obesity. This webinar, co-sponsored by the Network and the CDC’s Public Health Law Program, will explore the built environment ― the places where we live, work, play and learn ― and how its regulations can have an effect on health. Presenters will discuss the relationship between the built environment and health, and the role of legal tools like comprehensive plans and zoning laws in ensuring the creation and development of healthier communities.
