Building a Healthy, Prosperous and Sustainable Community

USGBC IS Public Health

This LUNCHandLEADERS will promote the connection between the work of USGBC members and their local Public Health counterparts.  Introduction will include a description of the Social Determinants of Health, which are the things throughout the community that enhance, facilitate or detract from a community's overall health and the health individuals.  The "built environment" is a major social determinant of health - including the many places where we live, learn, work, play and pray.  Once this background has been set, speakers will address three programs that could be implemented in local communities to promote health through design and siting of buildings. These include ways of looking at transportation access to buildings, including external landscape design and planning and also integration of the WELL building rating system in building design and renovation.
