Health by Design
Health by Design, an initiative of the Alliance for Health Promotion, is a coalition working at the intersection of the built environment and public health. Our mission is to create an environment that promotes physical activity and protects the environment through education, advocacy and action.
Members and partners include non-profit organizations, government entities, academia, private industries, businesses, and environmental groups. Health by Design is comprised of community planners; designers; architects; builders; and transportation, public and environmental health, recreation and safety personnel.
