Translating From Clinic to Curbside Seminar Series presents The National Prevention Strategy: Prioritizing Prevention to Improve the Nation’s Health

The built environment refers to the human-made surroundings of a community, such as parks, sidewalks, buildings, neighborhoods, and transportation systems. Current research indicates that a health-focused built environment, which may include features like walking and biking paths, as well as access to public transportation and full-service grocery stores, can improve physical and mental well-being. Conversely, poor community design (e.g., car-dependent places with limited recreational spaces) may encourage sedentary habits and exacerbate common public health problems like obesity, diabetes, heart disease, asthma, and depression.

This seminar will highlight several examples of organizations and communities working to promote health and prevent disease through changes in the built environment.
