Health Impact Assessment:
Incorporating Health into Planning and Decision-Making
Wednesday, November 9, 2016
9:00am – 3:00pm
Health Impact Assessment (HIA) can be used to evaluate a proposed plan or project’s potential effects on the health of a population. HIA provides evidence-based recommendations aimed at enhancing positive health impacts and minimizing negative ones. In this session, facilitators from the Planning Healthy Communities Initiative at the Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy will lead an introductory training on health impact assessment as a tool to promote community health and equity in planning processes and decision-making. Participants will engage in group exercises related to HIA steps, discuss opportunities and challenges to integrating health into planning and policy processes, and learn about new statewide collaborative initiatives and emerging tools to build capacity for health advancement in planning, and to support health in all policies.
