You’ve heard of evidence-based public health, but what about evidence-informed real estate? In the April session of Hot Topics in Practice, planner and architect Erin Christensen Ishizaki explains how her work uses public health research and design as interventions to reduce chronic disease.

In this one-hour webinar, Ishizaki will explore ways public health practitioners and designers can collaborate, and how built environment partnerships can address some of the most prevalent, costly, and preventable health problems. Using project examples from nearly 20 years in the field, she will review how holistic, evidence-based design can maximize investments and promote vibrant community outcomes.

Register today and learn a new vocabulary and strategies for partnering with urban designers, planners, architects, and developers to influence the built environment and combat chronic disease.
