Strategies for Enhancing the Built Environment to Support Healthy Eating and Active Living


The Healthy Eating Active Living Convergence Partnership developed the document "Strategies for Enhancing the Built Environment to Support Healthy Eating and Active Living." While it does not provide specific information about health in all policies, it does outline specific strategies on how local communities can affect health through built environment policies. The information contained in this document can be useful when working with non-traditional sectors to highlight some of the policy actions they can take to reduce obesity.
