Design for Health

Description:

Design for Health is a collaboration between the University of Minnesota, Cornell University, and the University of Colorado that serves to bridge the gap between the emerging research base on community design and healthy living and the every-day realities of local government planning.

The first phase of DFH (2006-08) created innovative, practice-oriented tools to help integrate human health into urban planning and environmental design in nineteen partner communities. The second phase is focused on tool development and public education.

Local health officials working towards implementing Health in All Policies (HiAP) in their jurisdictions will find these resources useful and informative as they engage planning and zoning commissions to consider health in their design plans.
