143rd American Public Health Association (APHA) Annual Meeting & Exposition: Health in All Policies
October 31, 2015 @ 4:00 am - November 5, 2015 @ 4:59 am
2015 Annual Meeting Theme: Health in All Policies
The environments in which people live, work, learn and play have a tremendous impact on their health. Responsibility for the social determinants of health falls to many nontraditional health partners, such as housing, transportation, education, air quality, parks, criminal justice, energy, and employment agencies. Public health agencies and organizations will need to work with those who are best positioned to create policies (legal and regulatory) and practices that promote healthy communities and environments and secure the many co-benefits that can be attained through healthy public policy.
