The Northwest Center for Public Health Practice (NWCPHP) is hosting its monthly Hot Topics in Practice webcast, with the June topic about “Incorporating Health Into Comprehensive Planning for Cities.” The presenter will be Amanda Leihton, PE – a planner and civil engineer. She will discuss how professional ties between public health and urban planning are being re-established through the development of comprehensive plans, documents that guide a city’s parks, housing, commercial space, and transportation infrastructure development. She will explain what public health officials need to know about comprehensive plans and the various approaches to incorporating health elements into their development.
